  3. Quickly sear the salmon on all sides. This shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes in total. The salmon still needs to be very raw in the middle. As soon as the salmon is seared well, then take the pan off the heat and place the salmon on a clean plate. Immediately put it in the fridge for 30 minutes until it is cold.
