Preheat a large heavy frying pan over medium heat for 3 minutes.
Coat salmon with olive oil. Place in frying pan, and increase heat to high. Cook for 3 minutes. Sprinkle with capers, salt and pepper. Turn salmon over, and cook for 5 minutes, or until browned. Salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork.
Transfer salmon to individual plates, and garnish with lemon wedges.
Very easy to cook, and I agree with the others regarding the oil - the oily fish itself means you only need to add the oil onto the pan.
Also, remember to cook on the skin side first. - 23 Sep 2009
Made it healthier.
This is a fast and flavourful recipe. Combined with the saltiness of the capers I did not think adding salt was necessary. I also did not rub olive oil on the salmon because it is a fatty fish to begin with. I did however, spray the pan with olive oil to prevent it from sticking. However, I enjoyed it immensely and I would make it again. As a side item, I sautéed brussel sprouts with olive oil and garlic. Delish! - 15 Sep 2008
