Pan seared salmon is probably one of the easiest fish recipe to cook and it is full of omega 3 and many health benefits. I love my salmon slightly pink in the centre. Potatoes and asparagus are my to go sides for salmon. Plate it up on a big round plate and you can serve it up as a michelin star dish at home!
