Lemon Butter Salmon

So, I’ve never actually made salmon.

I mean, I’ve bought the single, frozen, small packets of salmon, but I feel like those don’t count. They aren’t real pieces of salmon. Okay, well they are but they don’t taste anything like fresh salmon.

So when I had the Whole Food Groupon, I knew I wanted to use part of it to buy a fresh salmon filet. Salmon is such a treat (and a splurge) but so worth it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Melty butter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Melty butter with fresh lemon juice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poured on top of this delectable treasure? Mmhmm.

Lemon Butter Salmon

  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • Dash of salt & pepper
  • Salmon

Heat butter, juice, garlic,  salt & pepper until melted. Pour on top of salmon pieces. Place salmon pieces in the oven under the broiler (at 525 degrees) for 6 minutes. Flip to the other side and cook for another 6 minutes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Served alongside some roasted potatoes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And spinach and mushrooms (sauteed in the leftover lemon butter sauce).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A delicious (and nutritious) meal!

Question: Do you like salmon? What’s your favorite way to have it?

  1. Salmon is awesome. We actually make salmon cakes tonight on the skillet. But I’d take a pecan-crusted, baked Salmon over that any day of the week!

    • I do have some pecan pieces and more salmon…may have to try that!
