3) Make 1 inch slits in the flesh of the salmon and shove as much of the mixture as possible into the slits.
(NOTE: This does not look pretty at first but once sauteed the appearance becomes better.)
4) Place Salmon, flesh side down, in heated saute pan which contains the remainder of the olive oil, listed above, (1/4 cup). Saute until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.
5) Gently, flip the salmon over into a oven safe pan that is lined with parchment paper. Now, the salmon will be flesh side up for the remainder of the cooking time. Poor the oil from the saute pan in as well and place in preheated oven. Cook until Salmon becomes opaque, 4-6 minutes. Serve with basil sprinkled over top!
