Healthy Salmon Recipes from the Stovetop
I find that pan searing salmon on the stovetop is probably the easiest way to prepare healthy salmon recipes. Cooked on fairly high heat on a nonstick pan, pan seared salmon takes about five to seven minutes to cook. You get a bit of caramelization on the outside of the fish, and the salmon flavor is sealed in nicely. Check out our collection of healthy salmon recipes from the stovetop for recipe ideas.

I love the combination of salmon and mushrooms, so had to include one of my recipes that put those together for you.

Oh yes, Pinot Noir is perfect with salmon and mushrooms, too.
