Here is a one pound filet of fresh salmon.
Lightly coat the bottom of your skillet with olive oil. Heat oil to medium or medium-high heat. Place salmon skin side down in heated skillet. Let it cook for a few minutes.
Flip salmon onto a plate skin side up. I use a thin stainless steal spatula but you could also use a butter knife or some other thin metal utensil. Slip your utensil in between the skin and salmon and the skin slides right off.
Here is the now skinless salmon. I would only do this right before you plan to cook the salmon.
I use a stainless steal electric skillet but I think a non-stick skillet would work just fine. I do have to scrap some of the skin off my stainless steal skillet, you may not have to do that with a non-stick. Stay tuned for my next post using skinless salmon to make Chili-rubbed Salmon Tacos!
