Pan-Seared Alaskan Wild Salmon in Brown Sweet Sauce

Wild Alaskan salmon has earned its research reputation as a health-supportive food based largely on its unusual omega-3 fatty acid content. It's very common for 4 ounces of baked or broiled salmon to contain at least 2 grams of omega-3 fats.Salmon is sold in many different forms. Fresh salmon is available whole or in steak or fillet form. The best ways to cook salmon is by using methods that will keep it moist and tender. Salmon can be easily overcooked and become dry, so be sure to watch your cooking times.The best way for me to cook salmon is to pan-seared.
