Pan Grilled Salmon

Salmon is one if my favorite fish to prepare. It's simple and versatile in its presentation. It is unassuming, yet can make a meal special just by its presence. And, after a recent trip to Disney in which some of the chefs prepared it for me and told me how they were seasoning it, I have discovered my favorite way to have it: pan seared. This cooking method creates a succulent dish that is quick and easy with a burst of unexpected flavor.

2 salmon fillets (thawed)
2 tablespoons pure olive oil
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup sliced baby portebella mushrooms
Lemon Pepper to taste
Sea Salt to taste

Heat olive oil in a skillet on medium/high. Add fillets. Use a spatula to sear the fillets on each side (about  3 minutes per side). Sprinkle each side with sea salt and lemon pepper to taste. When done, place fillets on plates.

Saute onion and mushrooms in olive oil until just tender. Onions should be translucent. Spoon half of this on top of each fillet and serve.

This goes great with a blueberry salad in a lemon vinaigrette.
