TO COOK SALMON
Preheat broiler. Heat large skillet on high heat.
Season salmon on non-skin side with salt & pepper, generously.
Add oil to the hot skillet: the oil should sizzle.
Add salmon to the skillet non-skin side down (skin side up) and sear for 4 minutes,
Moving the fish around the skillet to make sure oil coats the surface of the fish and that the fish is not sticking to the pan while searing.
After these 4 minutes, turn the fish over to the skin side and sear for another 3 minutes on high heat. After searing on the skin side, you can actually remove salmon skin easily at this point and discard, if you don't like to eat it.
Mix honey and soy sauce together, heating it a little bit in microwave
Brush top of salmon with the honey-soy sauce.
Place salmon under the broiler for 3 minutes, watching carefully not to burn salmon.
Brush with more sauce midway through broiling, if desired. Broil for a total of 3 minutes until the top of salmon becomes a little charred.
At this point, salmon is ready to be served. Or, you can keep salmon covered until you're ready to serve. Put on top of noodles.
