Salmon Recipe – quick and easy cooked salmon fillet

My favorite salmon recipe calls for crisping the fish skin on the stove top then finishing the salmon fillet in the oven under the broiler. This is a simple salmon dish with just a bit of oil and
seasoning and a maple glaze to add a hint of sweetness. Honey can be substituted for the maple syrup, or this step can be skipped entirely. I often season salmon with just salt and pepper
and then cook the salmon fillet in the same manner.

    on hand, substitute honey.
