  • 1 pound fresh salmon
  • 2 teaspoons smoked sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Salt (see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon cracked pepper


  • Select the oven's broil function. Choose the 'high broil' setting. If the oven doesn't have a broil feature, preheat to 450° Fahrenheit.
  • Put the salmon in a cast iron skillet. Season both sides with sweet smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. 
  • Put the salmon with the skin side facing up into the oven. Set your kitchen timer to 6 minutes.
  • Flip the salmon. The skinless side is now facing up. Reset the timer for an additional 6 minutes. 
  • When the time goes off, check if the salmon has a nice golden crust. If the salmon is thicker, you need to add another minute or two.
  • Remove the salmon from the oven. Let the salmon to rest for a couple of minutes in the skillet.  
  • This allows the juices to come out and you'll have a nice piece of fully cooked salmon. You can serve this over pasta, salad, potatoes, even soup. The possibilities endless. Enjoy
