2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Directions:
Use a paper towel to pat dry the salmon filets, then brush them with 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Heat the cooking oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. When the oil starts to shimmer, gently add the salmon filets flesh side down. Cook for approximately 3 minutes, then flip onto the skin side. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes or until the salmon is barely cooked through. Be careful not to overcook it. Remove the salmon from the heat, brush with the 1 tablespoon reserved sesame oil and sprinkle with the sesame seeds and remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt.

Personal Notes:
Gigi is picky when it comes to fish. I like it just barely cooked through and she likes it fully cooked. With that being the case, I look for fillets that differ in thickness so they both cook in the same amount of time. As a side note, always have a bottle of sesame oil in your pantry. You'll be surprised how often you use it.
