Directions:
Heat a 12 inch heavy skillet for 3 minutes over high heat.
Add oil to pan. (yes, just 1 tsp.) Swirl to coat. When oil shimmers, but does not smoke, add filets skin side down and cook, without moving filets, until pan regains lost heat, about 30 seconds.
Reduce heat to medium high; continue to cook until skin side is well browned and bottom half of filets turn opaque, about 4 1/2 minutes
Turn filets and cook, without moving them until they are translucent on the exterior and are firm, but not hard when gently squeezed, about 3 minutes for medium rare and 3 1/2 minutes for medium.
Remove from pan. Let stand 1 minute. Pat with paper towels to absorb excess fat. Serve immediately.
