Knock Your Socks Off Salmon

Friday, June 21, 2013

I love salmon and salmon is my fish of choice for my no meat days of the week; however there is a challenge to find new recipes to keep my taste buds peaked. This is a new recipe for me that I found on and it is so delicious. The sweetness of the Agave Nectar and the kosher salt give it the tasty crust that I love and roasting the salmon in the oven keeps the salmon moist.

You will need:
salmon, skin removed (I used about 3 oz. fillets)
2 tsp.Agave Nectar
1 tsp coarse salt/Kosher salt,
1 tsp pepper
 Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and prepare a baking pan (I line it with foil and spray it with cooking spray to make for easy clean-up).

 Heat a non-stick skillet over Med-High heat (you are just searing the salmon) and spray with cooking spray or olive oil. Meanwhile, remove the skin of the salmon.

 Spread Agave Nectar on the side facing up and season with salt and pepper.

 Once the skillet is hot, place the salmon seasoned side down. Do not touch the salmon for about 2 minutes and this will create a crust.

 Meanwhile, season the side of the salmon facing up the same way as the other side.

 Flip the salmon over once that side has a nice brown crust and cook on the other side for another minute.

 After 1 minute, move the salmon to the prepared baking pan and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes (for well-done).

Sit down with your healthy sides and prepare to have"your socks knocked off".Enjoy
