Wild Alaskan Salmon

I usually cook salmon on the grill but this time I thought I’d try it in a cast iron skillet. Nothing too difficult, just a nice coating of lemon pepper and then a drizzle of sesame oil to finish it off.

This salmon is looking good. I’m really looking forward to this.

Disaster strikes! The skin has stuck to the pan! What a bummer. How am I going to deal with this? That’s another post. Well I can’t be too upset as the salmon tasted great. I guess I’ll stick to baking or grilling salmon until I figure out what went wrong.

Just a question- do the fish oils seep into the cast iron and make future recipes taste/smell like fish? LH

Not at all. After cleaning and reseasoning the skillet it was as good as before with no odor.
