4 Step how to Cook Salmon on the Stove

Best way to cook salmon on teh stove top! You’ll need nothing but salmon, lemon and basic seasonings.

Things You’ll Need:

  •  3 pieces of salmon with skin on (5 to 6 ounces a piece; I used wild sockeye salmon)
  •  3 lemon wedges
  •  1 tablespoon olive oil
  •  1 teaspoon kosher salt
  •  1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  •  Iron skillet (or another heavy bottomed skillet)

Step 1: Prep the Salmon

Remove the pin bones from the fish and liberally season both sides of the salmon with salt and pepper.


Step 2: Heat the Skillet

Heat an iron skillet over medium high heat and add olive oil to the pan.

Step 3: Cook the Salmon

Add salmon, skin side down, to the pan and cook for 6 minutes. Flip the salmon carefully and cook for another 5 to 6 minutes on the second side. Carefully remove the fish from the skillet.


Step 4: Finish with Fresh Lemon

After the salmon is cooked through, squeeze fresh lemon over top before serving.
