2/3 lb. salmon, skin on (we used 2 .33-lb. salmon filets)
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 medium lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon fresh dill
salt and pepper, to taste
First, prep salmon by patting with a paper towel to remove moisture. Then, season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Place 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 tablespoons minced garlic into a skillet and set over medium/high heat. Place salmon skin side up in the pan and sear for 4 minutes. Flip salmon and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes until barely pink in the middle.
Once flakey and cooked, squeeze 1/2 lemon on top of salmon and sprinkle with fresh dill.
