Salmon: For salmon prep, use paper towels to pat filets dry on both sides. Combine seasonings and sugar. Rub across both sides of filet. Heat about 1 Tbs. of olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium high heat until oil begins to ripple. Place filet flesh side down in skillet and sear for 1-2 min per side. Do not disturb except to turn. Meanwhile heat oven to 400 degrees. After filets are all seared place on baking sheet in oven until internal temperature registers 145 degrees F.
