1- Frozen Salmon – 6 oz ( 290 calories )
2- Salmon seasoning or garlic salt – 1/2 tsp
3- Lemon juice – 1 tbsp
Put the salmon in a small pan. Add the lemon and seasoning as seen on the picture below. Cover the pan completely. Put the pan over medium burner. Cook on the medium heat setting , this is very important step in order for the salmon to come up just right. If you need to see a picture of medium heat setting click on the “ Helpful tips”.
Cook for 8 minutes .
This is the picture after 8 minutes are done. Since the heat setting was just right , and the salmon was frozen you have juices in the pan . If you don’t see the juices n the pan that means your left the heat settings to high.
Turn the salmon over and cook for another 4 minutes. Turn off the heat. The picture below shows how salmon looks after 4 minutes are done . No juices left on the pan but you have all the flavor there. Take the salmon out and put 2 tbsp of water and scrape the pan in order to combine the flavor with the water. In this moment you can taste the juices and see if you like to add extra lemon or salt according to your taste.
