Pan Seared Salmon

For this recipe you want to use Canola Oil and Garlic and Onion Powder rather than Garlic or Onion salt. It still tastes amazing but you’re not getting too much sodium (salt)

Ingredients
  

  • 1 tbsp canola Oil
  • Pinch garlic Powder
  • Pinch onion powder
  • 2 salmon fillets

Instructions
 

  • Pat salmon dry with paper towel. Season with garlic and onion powder to your liking (on both sides). Heat  oil in large skillet over medium heat. Wait until the pan is nice and hot before placing salmon on it (salmon should sizzle when you place it on the pan). Fry salmon 4 to 5 minutes per side until just cooked through and fish starts to flake.
    *serve with steamed broccoli or green beans (takes 6 minutes if you buy a steamer. Simply add a little water to the bottom of a pot, put it on high until it is boiled and add steamer with veggies. Place cover over pot and leave for 6 minutes)
    This is a steamer if you haven’t seen one…
