Seared Salmon

1. Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Season salmon filets with salt, pepper and cumin seeds and then place in the hot pan. Sear the filets on one side for 3 minutes and then carefully flip them and continue to cook until they are just cooked through, about 3 to 5 minutes more. Keep warm while you prepare the salad.

Greens with Cumin Dressing
