Sauté the salmon for 3 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or up to 5 minutes on each side for well done. Total cooking time will vary depending on thickness of the filets.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Serves: 4


1 T. extra virgin olive oil
4 6-oz. Alaskan wild-caught salmon filets
Salt and pepper, to taste
3 c. mixed salad greens
1 c. cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
1 medium English cucumber, peeled, cut in half and seeded
4-5 fresh dill sprigs, roughly chopped
¼ c. fresh mint leaves, chopped
¼ c. fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 T. Dijon mustard (gluten free, check labels)
2 T. extra-virgin olive oil
2 T. apple cider vinegar
1 fresh lemon, cut into wedges

For garnish:

1 fresh lemon, cut into slices
2 sprigs fresh dill


Preheat the olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Season the salmon with some salt and pepper on both sides and place skin-side down in the hot pan. Sear for 3 – 4 minutes before carefully flipping the filets. Cook for another 3-4 minutes before removing from heat.

In the meantime, combine the mixed salad greens, tomatoes, cucumber, and fresh herbs in a large bowl and toss to combine. Set aside.

To make the dressing, whisk the Dijon mustard, olive oil, and apple cider vinegar in a small glass bowl and season with salt and pepper, to taste. I used a salad dressing mixer to mix my dressing. Pour dressing over the salad and toss to combine.

To serve, season the salmon with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a few dill sprigs. Serve with herb salad.

I love salmon!! When it came time to make this yummy salad is was excited because I knew I would get to use my Le Creuset skillet to cook the salmon. I have talked about this skillet many many times before and it is one of the staples in my kitchen. It distributes the heat evenly over the surface of the skillet and heats up quickly. With it being non stick it makes clean up a cinch even when cooking steak. Click on the picture or link to check it out!!
