4 each 5-7 ounce salmon fillets, pin bones removed
1 tsp cooking oil
Salt and pepper to season
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Heat a large saute pan on your stovetop to medium-high.
Season both sides of salmon fillets with salt and pepper.
Add 1 tsp of oil to the pan.
Place fillets "round" or "presentation side" down.
Cook over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes. They should become lightly browned.
Turn salmon fillets over and cook 1 minute.
Place pan in the oven and cook another 8 minutes, or until fillet is cooked to desired doneness. If you like your salmon cooked all the way through, cook until you see albumen (the white matter) forming on the sides.
