Pan-Fried Salmon, Spanish Rice With Cilantro Oil Recipe

Pan-Fried Salmon, Spanish Rice With Cilantro Oil Recipe
images –

Pan-frying is one of the simplest, healthiest, and most delicious ways to cook fish fillets. You can choose to coat the fillets with flour or just fry them directly. This cooking method avoids the large amount of oil required for deep-frying. Pan-fried fish fillets are browned and crispy on the outside but moist and juicy on the inside.

With this recipe, you can serve a healthy pan-fried salmon to your family. This recipe uses salmon fillets that are lightly seasoned. The fillets are served on a bed of rich, tasty, and hearty Spanish rice.
