  2. Get a pan hot over medium-low heat, add butter until it starts to foam. Remove salmon from bag, and gently sear for about 45 seconds skin side down.
  3. Plate salad up, and add that delicious buttery salmon right on top. For an added flavor punch, drizzle the butter from the pan over the top, and devour!
