Unveiling the Sockeye Secrets: FAQs
- How do I ensure my salmon doesn't stick to the pan? Ensure the pan is adequately hot, and don't move the salmon around too much. Let it sear!
- Is there a skinless option? We believe in the traditional approach, leaving the skin on for added flavor and nutrition. However, if you prefer skinless, you can remove post-cooking.
- Any alternative to butter? Olive oil or ghee can be an excellent substitute, although the flavor might slightly differ.
Twist & Personalize: Ingredient Alternatives
- Butter: Consider using clarified butter (ghee) or olive oil for a slightly different, yet delicious taste.
- Lemon: In the absence of fresh lemons, lemon zest or a hint of lime can bring that citrusy punch.
- Garlic Cloves: If fresh garlic isn't at hand, garlic powder or even a light touch of garlic paste can work wonders.
2 filets Sizzlefish Sockeye Salmon, thawed
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Black Pepper
3 tbsp. Butter, cubed
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 tbsp. Fresh Parsley, chopped
Juice of 1 Lemon
Heat up a skillet over medium high heat. In the meantime, pat dry both sides of the thawed Sockeye Salmon.
Then season both sides with salt and black pepper. Add 1 tablespoon butter to the skillet.
Once the butter is melted, add the Sockeye Salmon. Cook untouched for 4-5 minutes, until golden along the edges.
Flip the fish filets. Add the remaining butter, minced garlic, and lemon juice. Baste the fish in the lemon butter sauce to finish cooking, about 4-5 more minutes, until flaky.
Garnish with fresh parsley to enjoy warm!
