Restaurant Style Rosemary Salmon


(serves 2)

Level: Super Easy

  • 2 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Fresh Rosemary
  • 2-3 tablespoons of butter


  1. Heat the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot and shimmering.
  2. Season salmon with salt and pepper generously on all sides.
  3. When the oil is screaming hot, add salmon skin side down (the skin should be touching the pan)
  4. Cook the salmon, without moving, until golden and crisp. Seriously, don’t touch or move it! Cook for 6-8 minutes to create really crispy skin and cook the salmon about 80% of the way through.
  5. Carefully flip the fillets and reduce the heat to medium. Add the butter and fresh Rosemary
  6. As the butter melts, tilt the pan away from you, and spoon the melted butter over the salmon.
  7. Continue spooning until done to your liking, 2 to 3 minutes more. This will help the middle of the salmon cook through and create a delicious rosemary infused salmon.
  8. Transfer to a platter and serve with lemon wedges!
