This is probably one of the best salmon dishes I have ever made…the salmon was moist and very flavorful.
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon lemon pepper
2 (4 ounce) fillets salmon
Season salmon fillets on both sides with lemon pepper.
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium high heat. Stir in garlic. Place salmon in pan.
Cook for 10 minutes per inch of thickness, or until fish flakes when tested with a fork. Flip fillets halfway through cooking to brown on both sides.
Sprinkle with lemon juice before serving.
Did I change anything? I completely forgot the lemon juice. I had the lemon…just forgot to use it.
What did the family think? There was high drama at dinner that night, but not over the salmon. The salmon was lovely, the 6-year old was not…apparently he felt that his fish sticks were “squished” and that his brother should trade with him because his brother’s fish sticks were not “squished”. I assure you that his fish sticks were totally fine and that he just needed to go to bed and sleep it off.
