Ingredients

  • 4

    pieces salmon, 6oz each, skin on

  • 3

    tbsp olive oil

  • 2

    tbsp maple syrup

  • salt to taste

  • 2

    tsp cracked peppercorns

  • 1

    tbsp vegetable oil

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 2. Use the back of a heavy chef's knife to scrape away any liquid from the salmon skin. 3. Combine 3 tbsp olive oil and maple syrup and brush lightly over flesh and skin of salmon, reserving a little for a final brush. Season with salt and cracked peppercorns. 4. Heat a large cast iron pan or dutch oven over high heat until very hot. Add vegetable oil and swirl to coat. Working in batches if necessary, lay salmon in pan, skin side up, and sear for 2 minutes or until golden. Turn over and brush with remaining maple-oil mixture. Transfer pan to preheated oven and roast salmon skin side down for 5 minutes or until just cooked through. 5. Serve salmon skin side down.
