A simple but sophisticated lemon in a lemon butter sauce. Incredibly easy and date-night approved.
Prepping salmon: Sprinkle salmon filets on both sides with garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Set aside to marinate for 10 minutes.
Heat up a large skillet over medium heat and immediately add in the 4 tablespoons of butter. It will take about 3-4 minutes for the butter to melt and turn brown.
Add in the salmon filets and cook uncover for 3-4 minutes on each side. Add in lemon zest and lemon juice in the last 2 minutes of cooking time.
Transfer salmon to serving plate. Spoon some of the lemon butter sauce over and garnish with parsley. Enjoy!
Cooking time might varies depending on the thickness of your salmon filets. We love using wild salmon in this recipe.
