  1. Step 1

    If you want the skin to crisp up in the pan, it needs to be completely dry before you start cooking. Place the salmon fillets skin-side up on a plate and gently pat the skin with paper towel.

  2. Step 2

    A really hot pan is essential for getting the skin to go crispy, so preheat a frying pan on high. Spray the skin side with oil. Alternatively, spray the pan with oil before preheating.

  3. Step 3

    Seasoning does more than add flavour – the salt also draws out moisture from the skin so it crisps up quickly. Sprinkle the skin with sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper.

  4. Step 4

    Work quickly to crisp the skin without overcooking the salmon. Place skin-side down in pan and cook for 3 mins or until crispy. Turn and cook for 2 mins or until cooked to your liking.
