How to Sauté Salmon

Inspired by Good Fish by Becky Selengut

serves 2

2 Vital Choice wild Alaskan sockeye salmon fillets
1 teaspoon Vital Choice organic salmon marinade
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Preheat skillet to medium-high heat.

Add the marinade and oil to a dish or re-sealable storage bag and blend together. Coat fish with marinade mixture. Sauté until opaque throughout, which will take 6-8 minutes* per inch of thickness. Remove from heat and let rest 2-3 minutes before serving.

*Cooking time varies by species — sockeye cooks the quickest, and king cooks the slowest, due to their differing fat contents: less in sockeye, much more in king. Skin-on salmon portions will cook a bit more slowly than skinless salmon.
