Pan-Seared Salmon
Serves 1

1 6-ounce wild-caught salmon fillet
Sea salt and freshly-ground pepper
1 lemon, juiced
1 lemon, sliced
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
3 teaspoons Kerrygold butter

Pat a salmon fillet dry. Season with salt and pepper. Give the fillet a good squeeze of lemon juice and rub in.

Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a non-stick pan. Place fillet, flesh side down, pressing lightly. Sear, undisturbed, for 3-4 minutes, until crispy and golden.

Flip and sear the other side for TWO minutes. Add 3 teaspoons butter and another good squeeze of lemon juice. Stir. Cook fish for a further 1-2 minutes. Butter will begin to brown a bit.

Serve with lemon slices. Capers are nice, too.
