Dinner Is Served: Pan Seared Salmon

This salmon is absolutely delicious! I used to never eat fish. I was lied to by my mother who told me I was extremely allergic to it so I always assumed I would never try it. One day, while eating out at a restaurant with my family, I ordered chicken tenders. My food came and everything looked fine. I took a bite and it was clear that I had not taken a bite out of chicken. We asked the waiter and she told us what I got were fish sticks. I thought I was going to die. In the midst of a panic attack and what I thought would be my final goodbyes, my mom told me that I actually wasn’t allergic to fish. I kinda felt like Jimmy from Bubble Boy but on a much lower scale. 

So now I eat fish! Salmon is one of my favorite seafood dishes and I highly recommend it to people who haven’t tried seafoods but want to ease into it.
