1 skinless salmon fillet, about 1 1/2 lb (675 g), cut into 4 portions
Salt and pepper
In a saucepan over very low heat, warm the oil, thyme and garlic. Do not overheat. Maintaining the oil’s temperature, let the thyme and garlic steep for about 5 minutes. Season the salmon with salt and pepper and place in the oil (the salmon should be completely covered with oil). Cook uncovered for about 12 minutes at the same temperature. Remove from the oil and pat dry.
