Pan-Seared Salmon

Half of our family loves fish, and the other half hates it.  Every once in a while we will do two different meals so those of us who don't like fish can eat something we like.  Here is a simple salmon recipe that Vince likes to do.

6 skinless, boneless salmon fillets
Olive oil
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Rub salt and pepper all over the salmon.
Put enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan and heat over medium-high heat.  When oil is hot, add the salmon in a single layer and cook until browned on both sides (about 2 minutes per side depending on how thick they are)  Reduce the heat to medium and continue to cook, turning only one more time until the salmon is a pale pink in the middle.  Serve immediately.

My kids never really liked fish either and one even baulks at salmon. However, he would eat tuna steaks done in the same way. Less fishy and more like meat :)
