Seared Salmon with Zucchini Noodles
Sometimes the healthiest meals can be the simplest to make. I used exactly 5 ingredients on this meal: salmon, zucchini, lemon, olive oil and salt & pepper.
- 1 Filet of Salmon
- 1 Cup of Zucchini Noodles (buy at the store pre-cut or cut yourself)
- 1 Lemon
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- Salt & Pepper
Put 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a hot pan (cast iron works best)
Once oil is hot, drop in your zucchini noodles
Occasionally flip the noodles (like a stir fry)
While the noodles are cooking, generously season your salmon filet on the fleshy fish side with salt and pepper
Once the noodles are brown on some parts and soft, take them out of the pan and put them to the side.
Now put the other tablespoon of olive oil in the pan
Once the oil is hot, lay your salmon filet down in the pan, skin side down
Once you see that the cooked part of the salmon has creeped halfway up the side of the fish, flip it over
Let the salmon cook until the top is nice and brown and crispy seared, about 3-4 more minutes
Take the salmon out and plate it next to the zucchini noodles
Generously squeeze lemon on the salmon and noodles
Salt and pepper the noodles to taste
