Yield 2 1x


  • 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


  1. First, prep salmon by patting with a paper towel to remove moisture. Then, season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  2. 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.
