How to Pan Sear Salmon

Start by removing the pin bones from your salmon filet. You will feel the bones sticking out when you run your fingers over the meat of the fish. Simply us a pin bone remover or clean tweezers to get them all.

Next, you will remove the skin. Simply lay the fish flat, skin side down. Run a sharp knife under the meat and as close to the skin as possible. This will separate the meat from the skin.

Place the salmon filet on a cutting board and cube it into bite-sized pieces. Pat the cubed salmon dry with paper towels. Absorbing the excess moisture will allow the fish to get crispy on the outside.

Season the cubes with blackening spice. Toss until they are well coated.

Next, add olive oil to a non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the seasoned cubed salmon to the pan.  

Sear for 3-4 minutes or until the salmon is cooked to your liking. Be sure to turn the cubes frequently so all sides of the salmon cook evenly.
