Here’s a list of all the ingredients you’ll need to make this dish. I will have it on the screen. I will try my best to put the ingredients on the screen for you guys as I noticed it is easier for you guys. So I’m using these beautiful fish, salmon filet here, and of course I’m using Mrs. T seasoning paprika, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt.

We’re going to mix all of these ingredients together so we can have a nicely welcome combined seasoning. And then next we are going to drizzle a little bit of olive oil onto our fish filet or salmon. And don’t forget to drizzle the olive oil on both sides. Now is the perfect time for you to season your salmon. So what I’m going to be doing is sprinkling my seasoning all over the salmon and as well as rubbing my fingers all over it.

As you guys notice, I am tapping it as well just to ensure the seasoning stick and stay on there and you know, so we can have a nice salmon, delicious salmon. Of course, now we’re going to season the other side. Of course, just flip it over and repeat the same steps.

Now, before I start cooking the salmon, I like to let it sit for about three to five minutes, just to ensure the seasoning melt into the fish, and we’re going to get ready to cook it on medium high heat. I am going to place my skillet, make sure it’s nice and hot. We’re going to melt the butter. I am using unsalted butter. Of course, you can use salted butter if you want. We’re going to let that melt.

Once melted, make sure it’s nice and hot. We’re going to place the salmon right in there and don’t move it. Now, if you move it, you are definitely going to mess with the crust because you want a nice crispy crust in the center to be nice and flaky. Do not move it. Let it sit. We’re going to cook it for about three to four minutes per side. Then flip it over and cook the other side for another three to four minutes.

Now at this point, if you wanna take it up a notch a little bit, you can add some thyme or garlic cloves in there just to add some more flavor. But let me tell you, this is a basic, simple salmon recipe, and it was absolutely delicious and so flaky and the crust, like the crust was nice and crispy, and the center was very flaky.

It is the best salmon recipe. I ooh, it was juicy to y’all. It was not dry. I hope you guys try this out.

 Wild-caught vs Farmed Salmon

Wild catch salmon and farmed salmon are two types of salmon that you can find in the market, but they have some differences in their appearance, taste, nutrition, and environmental impact. Here are some ways to tell them apart and decide which one to choose for your dish.

Appearance

One of the most obvious differences between wild catch and farmed salmon is their color. Wild catch salmon have a deeper and darker red or orange hue, while farmed salmon have a lighter and paler pink color. This is because wild catch salmon get their color from the natural pigments in the algae and plankton they eat, while farmed salmon are fed artificial or synthetic colorants to enhance their appearance. Another difference is the fat content. Wild catch salmon have less fat and more lean muscle, which makes them firmer and less oily. Farmed salmon have more fat and less muscle, which makes them softer and more fatty. You can see the fat as white lines or marbling in the flesh of the fish.

Taste

The taste of wild catch and farmed salmon also depends on their diet and environment. Wild catch salmon have a more robust and complex flavor, as they feed on a variety of prey and swim in different waters. Farmed salmon have a more mild and bland flavor, as they are fed a controlled and uniform diet and live in confined and crowded pens. Some people prefer the stronger taste of wild catch salmon, while others prefer the milder taste of farmed salmon.

Nutrition

Both wild catch and farmed salmon are rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for your heart and brain health. However, wild catch salmon have some advantages over farmed salmon in terms of nutrition. Wild catch salmon have more omega-3 and less omega-6 fatty acids, which is a better ratio for reducing inflammation and preventing chronic diseases. Wild catch salmon also have more minerals and antioxidants, such as selenium, zinc, and astaxanthin, which can boost your immune system and protect your cells from damage. Farmed salmon, on the other hand, may have more contaminants and toxins, such as mercury, dioxins, and antibiotics, which can harm your health and the environment.
