First Dry salmon and put on a plate or in a mixing bowl.
Then Pat the seasoning onto both sides of the salmon until evenly coated.
Heat oil in a big skillet over medium-high heat.

Flip the salmon fillets over and cook for another 3-4 minutes until cooked through and an agreeable brown (but not quite black) crust develops. Please note: thicker fillets may need an extra few minutes to cook, and you may need to reduce the heat to prevent the salmon from burning before cooked through.
