Pan Fried Salmon Recipe with Lemon Butter

Pan Fried Salmon Recipe with Lemon Butter

 

This Pan Fried Salmon Recipe is perfect for a busy weeknight. Plus, if you jazz up the flavors without overdoing it you have a quick and easy weeknight dinner that is also very tasty. We recommend wild caught instead of farm raised salmon. Yeah, it costs a little more but you get a lot more flavor. Not bland like the farm raised ones.

Our extra flavors tonight are just lemon, butter and a little dried dill weed.  Plus a wedge of lemon for serving, of course.

I multi tasked and pan fried some Asparagus spears. Lemon and butter plus some parmesan cheese for the asparagus. And “baked” potatoes in the microwave.

Today’s Tip

Keep the rinds from wedges of parmesan cheese and save them in the freezer. Put them in your sauces and soups to add a whole new level of flavor. 

 

How to put together your Pan Fried Salmon Recipe

 

Put the pan for the salmon on at medium and eyeball about a tablespoon of olive oil, a pad of butter and a pinch of dried dill weed. Optional on the dill weed. We like the added flavor of dill weed whenever we have fish.

Squeeze in the lemon juice and add the rind to the pan. Then just charge on and lay the salmon in the pan with the skin side up.

Put on a pan for the asparagus. Rinse off the asparagus and cut the ugly stump ends off the stalks. Same olive oil, butter and lemon routine and lay the asparagus out in the skillet. Generously sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese. Use a pair of tongs and turn the asparagus over a few times as it cooks. 

Poke a few holes in the potatoes and put them in a ceramic bowl in the microwave. They will take 4-6 minutes depending on your microwave and their size. When they are soft and hot to a pinch they are ready.

After about 2-3 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon. Turn them over. The skin side is going to take a little longer to cook. When you poke the salmon with a fork and the layers want to separate it’s ready. The asparagus will be ready. The potatoes will be ready.

You did great!
