Juicy Mediterranean Salmon a Lean & Green Recipe

  • Prep Time: 2 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 12 Minutes
  • Total Time: 14 Minutes

Servings: 4 Serving 




  1. Place a nonstick skillet large enough to hold the salmon on the stove over medium high heat.

  2. Spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.

  3. While pan is heating, sprinkle seasoning over the fish and pat it with your fingers to help it stick.

  4. When pan is hot, place salmon, seasoning side down and let it sear in the pan for 2 minutes.

  5. Gently turn the salmon pieces over, turn the heat to medium and cover the pan with a lid.  Let salmon cook for 4-7 minutes until desired temperature is reached.  You can test the temperature by gently poking the salmon with your fingertip (careful!) The more "squishy" it is, the more rare, the more firm, the more well done.

  6. Place salmon on a plate and serve with your favorite side dish!
