Season each salmon fillet with salt and pepper.
Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. When skillet is hot enough, splash in olive oil, give it a minute or two until oil is hot and add salmon fillets skin side down. Sear salmon for 5 minutes. (Don't touch fillets during this time)
With a metal spatula, turn fish to the other side and continue searing for 4 more minutes. Transfer to a plate and serve with the sauce, browned potatoes and green beans.
