Pan Seared

Copper River Salmon

(serves 2-3)

Sockeyes are well known for their densely textured meat that ranges in color from orange to deep, dark red. They take on this coloring from eating more plankton and crustaceans than any other salmon species. This contributes to their rich and complex flavor, making them a favorite this time of year.

1 Pound of Copper River Salmon

2 Tablespoons Grape Seed Oil

2 Tablespoons of Honey

2 Tablespoons of Balsamic Cream

Salt and Pepper to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season

salmon with salt and pepper.

  1. Heat an oven proof skillet over

medium-high heat. Add oil. When hot - add the salmon, skin side down. Sear for approximately 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.

3. Transfer to the oven and cook for approximately 4 - 5 minutes until flaky.

4. In a small bowl, mix the honey and balsamic cream. Drizzle as desired over the salmon while it is still in the pan.
