    This turned out really good. I did add some fennel which I think perfected this recipe.
    Super good & easy. I put it on a bed of cauliflower rice with a poached egg on top & hollandaise sauce drizzled over it.

    Really tasty! Would have preferred to use salmon with no skin for easier prep.

    Excellent. I've made it twice now and it's an easy and delicious recipe. Tilting the pan a bit and pressing the fish into the side helped cook the thicker pieces without having to try to flip them on their sides. It also helps to let them sit a bit on a napkin if you've made a couple servings, otherwise the bottom of the batch gets way too salty.

    So bomb. I didn’t have Cayenne pepper so I substituted it with chipotle chili and it was so bomb the best salmon I’ve ever heard

    Really good! The first batch I made I had the heat too high and it burned. The next try I used medium low for olive oil. So good! My kids even liked it! Will make again.

    Pretty good but added more cayenne. Also had to broil salmon as it was taking too long to cook.

    Delicious! Skin peeled right off and was super moist. Def need to cook on sides if you have a thick piece of fish.
