Step 1: What you need (for the salmon)
Basic kitchen utensils, pan, oven, spatula, etc....
Salmon steaks (I like sockeye, fresh is best, but this time I used frozen ones. It's what I had)
Fresh ground black pepper (fresh ground is more powerful than preground pepper, use accordingly)
oil (I use olive)
Step 2: Prep
Step 3: Pan searing
If your patient enough, and have steady hands, use the spatula to hold it up on the large sides and brown those. I did it to one side, but got bored of holding it, and didn't do the other side.
