  • Whisk together the butter, lemon juice, parsley, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir in the peppercorns. Dip the salmon into the sauce so the flesh side is coated, and set on a plate,

  • Heat the olive oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil begins to smoke, add the salmon, placing it skin side up into the skillet. Cook for until the flesh is seared and golden brown, about 1 minute.

  • Place the skillet into the preheated oven, and cook until the salmon flakes easily with a fork, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately.

This came out really good! I didn't have the peppercorns unfortunately so I probably was missing something crucial but I still really liked it. The sauce was tasty but simple enough to let the taste of the salmon come through. Will definitely make salmon this way again! Read More

Excellent way to cook salmon! I used minced garlic instead of garlic powder skipped the whole black peppercorns (hubby doesn't like too much heat) as well as the oven step and just pan seared the fish. Flavorful and yet not over-powering. Used the same sauce for shrimps too for a great side. Read More

I have had two wild salmon filets in my freezer for a couple of months that were given to my husband by a salmon distributor. We are not big fish eaters-ok, I am not a big fish eater but I decided I was tired of looking at them in my freezer and chose the recipe to give it a try. I made this exactly as stated in the recipe and it was actually pretty good - for fish! My seven year old son even kept commenting on how good it was - once he got over the shock that I actually cooked fish. I would highly recommend it to any fish lovers out there. Read More

I hate salmon, as does my husband, but the doctor recommended he start eating it weekly. This recipe was AWESOME! I almost didn't wake my toddler up from his nap just so I could eat his. In the end, motherly instinct won out and guess what? Even a three year old loves this recipe. Read More

This was really good. I used a lot more lemon then usually because I love lemon but overall it was really good. I did skip the oven part to make it quicker and just cooked it over the skillet. Read More

Absolutely Awesome!!! I didn't have the peppercorn or parsley the recipe called for so it may have been better if I had all the ingredients :-) I put the salmon over angel hair pasta w/ roasted garlic alfredo sauce... Delicious! Read More

This was a wonderful recipe. Didn't change anything. I like fish but am afraid to make it because it never turned out right. This one turned out perfectly even as leftovers. My 3y old even liked it. This one is a keeper. Read More
