Recipe Notes

If you are using raw salmon, to prepare it quickly heat a skillet over high heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and once hot add the salmon fillet. Cook on each side until browned and cooked through, reducing the heat to medium-high. 

I prefer to always cook salmon on high heat in hot oil to make sure that it gets a nice sear on each side.
