  • 1 lb. brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil, separated
  • 1/2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 tsp. salt, separated
  • black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  3. Place coated sprouts on baking sheet and roast in oven for 25-30 minutes.
  4. While sprouts are roasting, score the skin of each salmon filet with a sharp knife (Three scores each should do it.)

  6. Preheat large pan to medium-high heat. Add the remaining olive oil to pan.
  7. Place salmon in pan, skin side first, and sear for 3-4 minutes. Turn to other side and sear additional 2-3 minutes. Finish cooking salmon in oven, for an additional 4-5 minutes. Rest 5 minutes before serving.
