Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper and dredge in flour. Place fillets in the skillet. Cook until browned, quickly flipping the salmon halfway through, about 5 minutes total. Remove from the skillet for a moment.

  • Add lemon juice to the skillet and scrape the bottom with a wooden spoon. Add broth and capers. Return salmon to the skillet. Cook until fish flakes easily with a fork and sauce is reduced by half, 6 to 8 minutes more. Serve with sauce drizzled on top.

Loved the sauce on this and would definitely make it again with a few tweaks. I might skip the flour altogether, since I didn't really feel it was needed and gave the fish a bit of a gummy texture after simmering in the sauce. The 5 minute searing time was perfect, however before adding the salmon back into the pan, I reduced the sauce on its own for 5 minutes. I then added the fish back in and simmered an additional 3-4 minutes. There's no way the sauce would have reduced down enough with the given directions. The sauce is very tangy, which I loved!

This was really good!! I used the modifications suggested. I didn’t use any flour and I let the sauce simmer for approx 5 min before adding the salmon back in, and I still had more than enough liquid. Mmmm, love the combination of lemon and capers! Read More
