  1. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook salmon, skin side-up, until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Turn salmon and continue cooking until skin side is slightly browned and fish flakes easily with a fork, about 5 minutes more.
  2. Meanwhile, melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a saucepan. Press garlic into the butter using a garlic press and cook for 1 minute. Pour in cream and stir constantly for 2 minutes. Add lemon juice and dill. Be careful that the sauce doesn't break.
  3. Serve sauce over salmon.

The only thing I did was add a tiny bit more dill and the zest of the Meyer lemon. Very good! Thanks for sharing it.

I could not find Meyer's Lemon Juice and used a store brand instead. I found myself using more, in fact much more, lemon than what the recipe called for and more dill weed as well. I don't know...

This is an awesome sauce for any kind of fish fillet. It is also great on veggies like Brussels sprouts or asparagus.

Easy and delicious. My 2 favorite things in a recipe!

I grilled my salmon but made the sauce as directed. DELICIOUS! Thank you for sharing - this one is going into favorites!

sauce was too thin. needs flour or cornstarch, I think .

Tasted ok but much too heavy to use on salmon for my taste. I prefer something much lighter.
