Lift fish from egg-white mixture and coat in cornmeal mixture. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Cook fish until golden brown and opaque throughout, 4 to 6 minutes, turning once (if fish is browning too quickly, reduce heat). Serve with ketchup.

           5. Tender and caramelized Atlantic Salmon

INGREDIENTS:

½ cup sugar

2 ½ tablespoons of sea salt

Freshly crushed black pepper

4 Salmon Fillets, with skin

Olive oil

METHOD:

Combine the sugar, salt, and black pepper in a shallow bowl. Dip each filet into the bowl and coat the entire surface of the salmon with the sugar/salt mixture. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the salmon, skin side down in the pan and sauté for about 5 minutes. Flip each salmon fillet and sauté for another 2-3 minutes. Flip to the side and sauté each of the sides for another 2-3 minutes, if the filet is thick enough. Preheat the broiler to 450 degrees. Sprinkle the mixture on top of each salmon fillet. Transfer the pan from the stovetop into the oven. Let the salmon broil for 5-10 minutes, checking occasionally to make sure it’s not burning. When the salmon is done, remove from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes.
