1 lb salmon fillets
2 tbsp olive oil
Season with salt & pepper
Rinse salmon under cold water. Dry thoroughly with paper towels. Using a cookie cutter or sharp knife, cut out salmon medallions. Season to taste on both sides.
In a skillet over med-high heat, add oil (ensure oil is very hot before you place salmon in skillet). Place salmon in hot oil. Cook salmon for approx 1 minute on one side and for 45 seconds on the other side (both sides should have a golden crust). Centre of salmon should be translucent. Serve as an appetizer. Garnish with spinach and lemon.
Donít let medallions touch each other.
Cook in small batches (donít over crowd)
