Simply Salmon | Pan Fried Salmon Steaks


Norwegian salmon, when bought fresh and cooked simply leads to a delicious wholesome and healthy meal. So when we found fresh, gorgeous salmon steaks at Pick ‘n Pay at a really good price, all other plans for supper were cast aside to make way for pan fried salmon to be served with pan seared corn spears, snap peas and mushrooms.

Supper literally took 10 minutes to cook, plate and serve! And what a meal it was. The taste of fresh salmon is something else and when cooked to perfection and seasoned just right, you can’t help but sigh in gratitude when the meal is done.
