  • 6 oz. raw salmon
  • Oil spray of choice I prefer avocado oil

Stovetop instructions:

    Absolutely fantastic salmon!! I use it with a berry salad I love. I didn’t have any fresh herbs on hand, but did have fresh garlic. It still came out amazingly. Can’t wait to try it with fresh ingredients!
