Nothing is simpler and more satisfying that pan seared sockeye with lemon and olive oil dressed cabbage salad.
1 lb sockeye – cut into 1/3 portions
1/2 -1/4 head of finely sliced cabbage
Juice of one fresh lemon
1 tsp of grape-seed oil for searing
3 Tbs of evoo
salt and pepper to taste
Add grape-seed oil to preheated skillet, med to high heat. Place sockeye salmon fillet skin up in hot oil, cover and sear for three minutes until fillet portions flip easily. Cover again and cook for an additional 5 minutes on the skin side down. Meanwhile, combine most of the lemon juice, cabbage, EVOO, and salt and pepper, reserving some lemon juice to serve over cooked fillets just before serving. Do not over cook sockeye. Remove from heat immediately after total cooking time of 8 minutes and allow fillet portions to rest for up to 4 minutes. Pour reserved lemon juice over cooked fillet portions while resting.
