Steps

  • Pat dry room temperature salmon filets with paper towel. Season all over with salt, pepper. Squeeze 1-2 teaspoons of lemon juice over each filet, and rub all the flavour in.
  • Heat the olive in a large non-stick pan or skillet over medium-high heat until hot.
  • Add salmon filets, flesh side down, while pressing lightly so the entire surface of the flesh comes into contact with the pan. Sear, undisturbed, for 3-4 minutes until crispy and golden.
  • Flip and sear the other side of each filet for TWO minutes. Then, add in the remaining butter, chopped garlic, 3 tablespoons of parsley, remaining lemon juice and lemon slices. Continue to cook the salmon for a further 1-2 minutes, or until salmon reaches desired doneness, while stirring the butter and garlic around each filet. (The butter will begin to brown slightly. YUM!) Taste test and season with salt and pepper to your tastes, and add more lemon juice if desired.
  • Garnish with the remaining parsley; drizzle the butter over each filet, and serve immediately.
