Paprika Salmon

In California recently, I had the pleasure of going out to dinner with my husband Michael, his sister Adrienne and her husband Aaron. My mother-in-law had given us a gift card to use at the restaurant, and was watching all of the kids for us. When we arrived at the restaurant we were delighted to find that it was trivia night! Between the four of us, and with some help from a neighbor not playing trivia, we managed to win 3rd place, which was a $15 gift card. One of the questions was something about the heart-healthy qualities of a food known as Pacific, Atlantic, King, and Coho. Salmon, of course!

This is so easy it hardly warrants a recipe, but it's tasty enough I didn't want to forget it.

Combine in a small bowl:

1-2 T olive oil
1 teas paprika
1/2 teas salt
1/4 teas pepper

Rub onto 4 salmon fillets, 6-8 oz each.

Heat 1 T vegetable oil in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add the salmon and saute for 4-5 minutes per side, until fish reaches at least 125 degrees. Sprinkle fish with another 1/4 teas paprika for extra flavor.
