Pan Seared Wild Alaskan Salmon - Quick, Easy & Delicious

This evening we enjoyed a quick, delicious and easy meal of pan seared wild Alaskan salmon (yes...I made it again). It's hard to believe that I returned home from Cordova only 1 week ago today. Since our Publix is still carrying fresh wild salmon from Alaska's Prince William Sound, I took advantage of the remaining short season of being able to buy it fresh locally (I'm not too worried though since I now have a stash of Copper River Salmon in my freezer from SenaSea Seafoods).

I pulled out my cast iron skillet and lightly seasoned the salmon fillets with some "Slammin Salmon" seasoning that I brought back from Cordova. I heated my lightly oiled skillet over medium high heat until it was nice and hot and then placed the salmon fillets in the skillet skin side down first and cooked them for about 4 minutes until the skin was crispy. I flipped them over and then seared them flesh side down for another 3 minutes or so. It literally took me less than 10 minutes to cook them. I served it with burrata and sliced tomatoes and green beans with almonds. The entire meal took less than 20 minutes to prepare which gave me time to get a head start on tomorrow night's dinner. I snapped a quick photo of my delicious and easy low carb meal below. Enjoy!

For all you "Deadliest Catch" fans...this was the 2nd time I passed this vessel!
