Dry Rubbed Pan Fried Salmon

DRY RUBBED PAN FRIED SALMON
A delicious gourmet style dish at a fraction of the cost. A similar dish at a restaurant would cost around RM 30 - 40.
The caramelized brown sugar is just heaven. It creates a slight crunchiness before your bite reaches the flakiness of the salmon. Top it off with a lemon butter sauce and all the flavours just melts in your mouth.
******************
Here's the recipe:
DRY RUB
1. Brown sugar (generous amount)
2. Dried oregano
3. Dried parsley
4. Pepper
5. Salt
6. Lemon zest (grated)
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
Rub the mix onto the flesh part of the salmon. Leave the skin part.
There is NO need to marinate over night.
PAN FRY
1. Put some oil into a non stick pan & heat it up with medium heat.
2. Once the oil is heated, fry the skin part first.
3. Don't turn the salmon until you see 1/3 of it change colour. This should take around 3 to 5 minutes, depending on the salmon portion.
4. Turn the salmon. Make sure all the surface is in contact with the pan.
LEMON BUTTER SAUCE
1. Half a lemon juice (I feel the lemons we have in a Malaysia are a bit more sour)
2. 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
3. Butter (the more you put, the more the calories)
Heat up the lemon in a pan on medium heat. Let it reduce by a 1/3. Then mix it up with the garlic & stir continuously.
Throw in a few knobs of butter once you smell the smell of sauteed garlic. Once all the butter is melted, you're done.
STEAMED BROCCOLI
Steamed is a misnomer. I actually microwaved it.
Pour some olive oil generously over the broccoli. Add some salt & pepper. Mix them all together. Pop the broccoli into the microwave for 2 minutes.
Looks simple but it tastes amazing.
