PAN-SEARED SALMON FILLETS

4 (1-lb total) salmon fillets
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp olive or canola oil
1 tsp butter
thinly sliced fresh mint for garnish if desired

Sprinkle the salmon with the salt and pepper.

Place the oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot.  Add the salmon fillets to the hot skillet and cook approximately 6 minutes, turning to brown each side.

Reduce the heat to medium and cook salmon another 3 minutes or just until it flakes easily with a fork.

To serve, garnish with the sliced mint, if desired.
