Step 2

Sprinkle the Emeril Essence over the meaty part of the salmon and let sit for 10 minutes.

Step 3

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and place the seasoned side down into the skillet; cook uncovered for 5 minutes or until you have a nice thin crust over the fish.

Step 4

Turn the fish over skin side down and add 2 tablespoons water, cover and cook for another 3-5 minutes or until fish is cooked through and flakes when poked with a fork. (This will depend on how thick your fish pieces are)
