Salmon – Cast Iron Skillet Style

Yields1 ServingPrep Time10 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time25 mins

This is one of my favorite ways to cook salmon. It's so easy, and it looks fantastic. The key is the cast iron skillet, which starts on the stove, then finishes in the oven. The time on the stove makes it brown and beautiful, and the oven makes the fish perfectly done.

 1.50 lbs Salmon Filet(s), Skin On
 1 tbsp Olive or Canola Oil
 Salt and Pepper or Lemon Pepper
 2 Lemons, Quartered

Preheat oven to 425 (400 Convection)


Heat Cast Iron Skillet on high heat.


Prepare salmon. Coat with Olive Oil and season non-skin side with salt and pepper. Add some lemon pepper spice if you want.


When skillet is hot, place the salmon, SKIN SIDE UP, into the skillet.


After 5 minutes, turn Salmon Filet over. Move THE ENTIRE CAST IRON SKILLET WITH THE SALMON into the oven. 5 Minutes


After 6 minutes, take out of the oven, or when the salmon is 130 degrees, and it is ready to serve! 5 Minutes
