Cracked Pepper Salmon


Yield: 4 servings

 

Salmon is one of the richest sources of beneficial EPA and DHA.
2 tbsp. cracked or coarsely ground black pepper
1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
four 6 ounce salmon fillets, about 3/4 inch thick at the thickest point
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. canola oil

1. Combine the first four ingredients in a small bowl.
2. Rub the salmon with the mixture and dredge the salmon in the flour.
3. Pour the canola oil into a large skillet over medium-high heat.
4. Add the salmon, and saute for 4 minutes on each side, or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Cooking tip: It's best to use thinner fillets for the skillet because they cook more evenly.
