If the thought of cooking Salmon with the skin on freaks you out a bit and puts a look of disgust on your face, I'm here to change that. Trust me, I, too, had a negative association with cooking Salmon with the skin still on. However, this is probably because I had only ever had sad, sad Salmon with chewy, underwhelming skin. I mean, obviously! Nothing about that sounds enticing.

The Salmon

 

Today, we are going to put all of the gloomy and unfavorable thoughts about Salmon skin to rest. Cooking skin-on Salmon in a searing hot cast iron skillet is the best thing you can do for the skin. Not only is it the best thing- it's the simplest. All you need for crispy, crunchy skin-on perfection is quality wild-caught, skin-on Salmon, Salt and Pepper, oil, such as Avocado, and a good ole cast iron skillet- that's all, folks.
