The salmon can be cooked any way you prefer, because the star of this recipe is the lemon cream sauce made with Meyer lemon.

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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. Read More

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 if this was because of the difference in ingredients or if my taste buds just wanted a little more of a stronger flavor. I poured the sauce over some salmon patties that I made using the "Easy Tuna Patties" recipe on this website. I just substituted canned salmon for the tuna. In the end, my wife loved it. That says a lot. :) Read More

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

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