Oil and transfer on canvas

Two 6-ounce salmon fillets, skin on
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
½ teaspoon fennel seeds, lightly crushed
1 lemon, zested then halved
¼ cup fresh chopped dill
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Season each piece of salmon with salt, pepper, ½ teaspoon paprika, ¼ teaspoon crushed fennel seeds, half the lemon zest and half the dill. Squeeze a lemon half over each fillet.

Pour the olive oil into a large skillet. Add the salmon fillets, being careful not to overcrowd them. Turn the heat to the lowest setting and allow the salmon to cook, undisturbed, for 20 to 25 minutes. The internal temperature should read 140°, and the salmon should be relatively firm to the touch. The sides of the salmon will be completely opaque, but the top will still be bright pink.

Gently remove the salmon with a spatula and transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain off any excess oil. Transfer the salmon to dinner plates and serve immediately.
