Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Wash and then pat the salmon completely dry.

Pierce a few small slits through the skin. Flip the filet to the other side, and season with kosher salt & pepper (sometimes I use Herbs de Provence).

Heat an oven-proof skillet with 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil. When the skillet is HOT (the oil is shimmering, but not smoking), place the salmon (skin side up) and allow to sear (don't touch this salmon) for 2 to 3 minutes. To check, lift a small corner and look for a golden crust.

Flip the salmon, skin side down and put into the oven. Roast for about 5 to 7 minutes.

Remove from the oven. You can make a beautiful pan sauce from the fond that is left behind.
