Directions:
Cut salmon into 4 equal portions. Season with lime pepper on one side if skin on. Heat oil in large non-stick skillet over high heat. Cook the salmon skin side down for about 2 minutes. Turn over and remove skin ( it will easily come off). Pepper the skin side and sear for about 3-5 minutes, turn again and sear for about 2 minutes. Remove from pan. Do not over cook as it will continue to cook at rest. Serve on 4 plates. Drizzle with light soy or balsamic, a drip or two of sesame oil, and slice or two of ginger. Decorate each plate with an artful wasabi pattern. The salmon can be dipped into this for delicious flavoring. Remember wasabi is a heated flavor. This dish is so versatile it can be placed over lentils, black beans, or salad.

Glo's mom, Pauline, loved to eat salmon. She knew it was good for your health even then. She lived to age 92, and had salmon, either fresh or canned nearly everyday.
