This salmon recipe was featured in one of our Dinner Bundles. Our Garlic Maple Blend is perfect for the richness of the salmon. We love what the Meyer Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil does to bring all the flavors together. Try brushing it at the end with a little one or even our Honey Ginger Balsamic!
2 Salmon Filets
Garlic Maple Rub
Meyer Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Season both sides of the salmon with Garlic Maple Rub along with a little salt and pepper. Allow to sit at room temp for 15 minues. Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Drizzle in the Meyer Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Sear the salmon on one side for 5-7 minutes or until deep golden brown. You will be able to see the opaque pink section of cooked salmon grow highter on the edge of the salmon. When this reached 1/3 of the height of the filet, drizzle in a little extra oil, flip the filet and reduce the heat. You may even want to turn the heat off and allow the residual heat of the cast iron to complete the cooking process.
Cook for an additional 3-6 minutes or until the desired internal temperature. Serve with a spritz of fresh lemon. We love this salmon on a bed of wilted spinach or kale. It's lovely with a sweet potato on the side, too!
