Cooking time: 10 minutes
6 portions of salmon, approximately 100g each
Salt & pepper

Season each piece of salmon with salt and pepper.
Heat the olive oil in a non-stick pan over a medium heat. Place the salmon in the pan, skin side down. Cook for 3 minutes then turn. Add the butter and cook for a further 2 minutes, or until cooked to your preference. Turn the heat up for the last minute if it is not getting enough colour.
