Pan cooked salmon

This is one of my favourite recipes when am standing in the kitchen and all hungry. Equally it is a great starter to a lunch or dinner with family and friends. If you prefer your vegetables fresh and crunchy, all you do is perfectly cooked your salmon cuts and plate them over preferred vegetables.
