Fresh salmon needs very little preparation. These salmon fillets are cooked in good, sweet butter and minced garlic, and then sprinkled with a little lemon juice. If you'd like a little more kick and a fancy presentation, caramelize onions and serve them
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon lemon pepper
- 2 (4 ounce) fillets salmon
- 1 lemon
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.
