Lemon Garlic Butter Salmon
Updated: Mar 30, 2021
This recipe is as easy as it is delicious. Salmon with chili lime spice is my go-to when I don’t have much time or energy to prep, but when I have a bit more time I love making this recipe. For dinner, I like eating it alongside cauliflower rice, broccoli, or wild rice. I also always make a few extra filets to add to salads for lunch later in the week. Fatty fish is an excellent source of DHA and omega 3's, which are crucial for healthy hormones, flexible cellular membrane, and a healthy heart and brain. They also release satiety hormones, making us feel full and satisfied, not to mention they're delicious!
4 filets of salmon
50 grams or 3.5 TBSP grass fed butter
4 cloves of garlic, minced
juice from 1/2 a lemon + lemon slices for presentation
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp dried parsley
Preheat oven to 200°C or 400°F
Melt butter in a frying pan over a low flame. Add garlic and sauté until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes.
Add lemon juice to the pan (make sure not to get any seeds in there!)
Add salt and pepper.
Top with lemon wedges for presentation.
Pour the sauce over the salmon filets. For fresh salmon, bake for 15-20 minutes. For frozen, bake for 25-30 minutes. When they are almost done, you can also broil for 2-3 mins to make it crispy.
