Pan seared Salmon

I'm not very fond of fish, but from time to time I get the urge to eat a little salmon.
And I usually don't get it very often either because it is kind of expensive. So I always wait for it to be on sale. :P

So here's my recipy. Simple and imprecise, but I like it. I usually just throw ingredients in to taste.

Marinade :

- Soy sauce (try lower sodium, it's better for you), enough so that the piece of fish's bottom is soaking in it.
- A few sprinkles of garlic powder (or a clove of chopped garlic if you have it)
- 1 tbsp of honey mustard
- 2 tbsp of brown sugar
- 1 tbsp of vegetable oil

Put in a shallow dish and mix together until the sugar is melted. Put in the piece of salmon and let marinate in the fridge at least 15 minutes. I usually leave it about an hour, turning it over a couple of times.

The fish sitting in it's marinade.

Next, heat your pan on medium heat with a bit of oil. When the oil is hot, drop your piece of fish in for about 5 minutes on the first side.

Turn it over and let the other side cook about another 5 minutes.

When there is no more dark pink and the meat easily flakes, the fish is cooked!

I added a few flakes of dried parsley on top of the fish and some pan fried corn to add a little vegetable touch. Tadaa!!!
