Coho Salmon Fillets


Adapted from a recipe by Alton Brown 
Coho salmon is in season in the summer. The flesh of the Coho salmon is light pink and has a very delicate flavor.  Coho is considered by some to be the best salmon for the grill because of its mild flavor and firm texture. It is also excellent for sautéing, frying or poaching. The wonderful flavor of this fish only requires a little salt, pepper and olive oil. 


2 (6-ounce) Coho salmon fillets
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper 
Heat a 10-inch nonstick sauté pan over medium. Brush each fillet with oil and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Place the fillets in the pan flesh side down. Cook for 2-3  minutes. Turn each fillet over and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes. Transfer the fillets to a plate, cover loosely with foil, and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
