  • Course: Entree

All you need for this recipe and more...


  • Olive Oil
  • 2 salmon fillets 
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup fresh chopped parsley


1. Take a large Farberware nonstick skillet and heat with about 3 tablespoons of olive oil to medium-high heat. 

2. While the oil is heating up, season the skin side of the salmon fillets with ½ teaspoon of salt and fresh cracked pepper. Place the salmon in the hot pan, skin side down. Cook for about 3-5 minutes until skin is golden brown and crispy. While the skin side is getting brown, season the other side of the salmon with ½ teaspoon of kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper. 

3. Flip the salmon and brown the other side for about another 3-4 minutes on medium-high heat. Then, add in the cherry tomatoes, white wine, and lemon. Let simmer for a couple of minutes to create a sauce. You can drizzle more olive oil at this point, if desired. 

4. Add the chopped parsley and serve over pasta, rice, quinoa or steamed vegetables.
