    Best salmon I’ve ever tasted! Had to turn filet back on flesh side to get internal temp just right. Will definitely have this again.

    Turned out great! I made it for my wife and now she wants to use this recipe when she makes salmon. I kept it on the skillet a lil bit longer to get it crispy!

    This turned out really good. I did add a little fennel seed which I think perfected this recipe.

    Super good & easy. I put it on a bed of cauliflower rice with a poached egg on top & hollandaise sauce drizzled over it.

    Excellent. I've made it twice now and it's an easy and delicious recipe. Tilting the pan a bit and pressing the fish into the side helped cook the thicker pieces without having to try to flip them on their sides. It also helps to let them sit a bit on a napkin if you've made a couple servings, otherwise the bottom of the batch gets way too salty.

    So bomb. I didn’t have Cayenne pepper so I substituted it with chipotle chili and it was so bomb the best salmon I’ve ever heard

    Really good! The first batch I made I had the heat too high and it burned. The next try I used medium low for olive oil. So good! My kids even liked it! Will make again.
