Paleo Pan Seared Wild Fish

27 Mar

John made dinner tonight!  If you are ever looking for a fast, but healthy, meal fish is about as fast as it gets.  Not to mention it doesn’t get much easier than a 5 ingredient recipe (and I’m including salt and pepper in those 5).


2-3 wild fish fillets (6oz each) – tonight was wild sockeye salmon and wild Alaskan cod

1-3 tbl. olive oil

Kosher or sea salt


2-3 tbl. lemon juice


Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat for a few minutes until HOT.  Season both sides of your fish with salt and freshly ground pepper. Add just enough olive oil to coat the skillet.  Add your fish to the skillet.  If your fish has skin add it to the skillet skin side up, this way the last part you will cook is the skin at it will be nice and crispy for your first bite.  Cook approximately 3 minutes, the fish will easily release from the pan when it is ready to flip.  Flip over and cook for 2 minutes.  Add lemon juice to the pan and cook for an additional minute or so until the fish is cooked through.
