  • Step 4/8

    Place the pieces of salmon on the pan starting skin-side. Do not remove until crispy (about a minute and some seconds). You can sightly peek in to check but don’t remove completely or you risk removing the undercooked skin.

  • Step 5/8

    • lemon

    Turn over to cook the other side for about two minutes and drizzle with lemon while cooking is in progress.

  • Step 6/8

    Once crispy, remove salmon and drizzle with more lemon and let it sit for a few minutes.

  • Step 7/8

  • Step 8/8

    Toss pasta into the pan and plate on a bright white pasta dish. Place salmon on top and serve.
