This lesson on pan searing was fantastic. I'm a talented home chef and still i learned some great new techniques. I've made Martha's pan seared salmon several times... following the recipe exactly... and it is fabulous and foolproof. If you desire to have perfectly pan seared salmon like served at the restaurants then you will be delighted with this recipe. I'm so impressed with this new series on PBS with Martha. I think these cooking classes are Martha's best show yet!
