TIPS FOR PAN FRYING SALMON
If you're pan frying your salmon, you want to put a touch of oil in the pan. Just enough to very lightly coat it. You're not trying to deep fry your salmon. Heat the oil until it's shimmering and hot.
The oil will heat the salmon from the bottom, and you'll start to see the salmon get from dark pink to lighter pink as it cooks. As it is turning lighter pink, you'll flip it ONLY ONCE to cook the other side. You don't want to flip this back and forth.
Also, when you flip your salmon, do it with a spatula away from you. That way you lessen the chance of oil splattering towards you.
