Crispy Skin Salmon


  • 2 x frypan
  • wooden spoon
  • Cooking Method:


  • 1 Fresh Salmon Fillet with skin on
  • 1 Zucchini cut into cubes
  • 12 Cherry Tomatoes cut in half

  • Garlic finely chopped
  • Sundried tomatoes
  • Pesto
  • Baby spinach
  • Lemon
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil Only if you can find it


  • Step One
  • To create a Mediterranean base for your crispy skin salmon, heat the saucepan on medium heat and add extra virgin olive oil.
  • Once it has warmed up, add cubes of zucchini and mix well.
  • After a few minutes, add cherry tomatoes, garlic, sundried tomatoes and a pinch of salt.
  • After 5 minutes add pesto and mix again.
  • Once combined well, add baby spinach and mix through.
  • Cook for 3 more minuetes or until the baby spinach has darkened in colour and cooked through.
  • Step Two
  • Get the salmon fillet and squeeze some lemon juice over the top, adding a pinch of salt.
  • Heat a frypan on medium heat and add extra virgin olive oil with a hint of lemon (you can use regular extra virgin olive oil too).
  • Place the fillet gently into the frypan with the skin down and let it simmer. Cook it for approx 5-6 minutes so it begins to become crispy.
  • Once the skin turns crispy, turn the salmon fillet and cook the other side 4-5 minutes.
  • E ora si mangia, Vincenzo’s Plate….Enjoy!
