This was really, really good. The only change I’ll make for next time is maybe only do 1/2 the butter. It just didn’t need a whole stick

The fish was delicious, but the recipe could be a bit more clear

Was great! Recommend the high heat for the crusty topping.

I made this last night. Quick, easy and delicious. I added 3 tsps total of the fresh lemon juice and cut the butter a bit. We will definitely make this again! Instructions are not clear on how to make the lemon butter sauce. I melted the butter and added the rest of the ingredients for the sauce.
My wife enjoyed the recipe "It did not taste like fish" Easy
easy recipe. a little lacking in flavor, though quality of salmon big factor (wild sockeye vs farmed). a little garlic salt and more lemon fixed it up

Instructions are a little iffy, but the results rocked. Made the lemon butter sauce and then cooked salmon in that. Like my salmon very moist so cooked it a tad less then the recommended time. Will save this one and make it again!
Liked it a lot but will add more seasonings next time.

i loved how simple and delicious this was
Excellent! I threw an extra teaspoon of lemon juice in the butter and it was delicious both on the fish as well as on our couscous. The salmon had a perfect crispy sear to it. Careful when you flip the fish... I had a splash of wayward butter hit my hand and scald me. Other than the burn, the meal was perfect!

Love it, I’ve made it several times and its my quicky go-to for white fish. Actually haven’t tried it on salmon as we catch way more rockfish, but I’m sure it’s amazing on salmon too!

Was easier than I thought! This one is going into the repertoire!
Amazing!!! I added basil and dill to the butter. Perfection.

This salmon is amazing. I literally bought it just for me since my kids/husband don’t like fish and it was soooo tasty! Just need to watch how thick the salmon is next time because I slightly over cooked it leaning more towards 4 mins each side instead of 3 :) ❤️❤️❤️

Really good! Added roasted garlic cloves.

Quick simple meal that everyone enjoyed including those who don’t usually like salmon. I used a little more parsley then the recipe called for and a little extra lemon. I also cooked the top side before the side with the skin to get an all around crispier top layer for the salmon.
Delicious, amazingly easy. Will definitely be a weeknight repeat!

It’s a basic delicious quick plate to make.

Great way to prepare salmon
Khadija Al Shamsi 11 Nov 2017
Very good. My kids loved it
Chris Swain 15 Sep 2017
Amazing!! So easy to make and would do again
Paul B. 17 Aug 2017
Recipe was delicious! Make sure to use a iron or stainless steel pan to fry the fish. Best basic salmon recipe I have found in a long time. Also I used very little butter, maybe 2-3 TBS for frying and making the lemon butter and I felt it was perfect.

I found it a little salty. I added garlic and that helped, but I would definitely cut back on the salt. I also did not get a crust so the pan must not have been hot enough for that.
Kate 30 Jun 2017
Was really good!!!! I altered it a little bit by adding garlic powder and chili lime seasoning. Definitely making this again!
tiffany 24 Jun 2017
A keeper! I did not modify a thing!! I thought it would come out wayyyy too salty but to my surprise it did not! It was wonderful for a home cooked meal!!! #yum
Alex C. 30 Sep 2016
So I made this dish the other night and it came out great. I took some advice from the reviews ; instead of put the fish in the oven I pan fry it and added garlic and came out great .
Maria T. 11 Jun 2016
This food is delicious!!!😍😍 I would recommend it. It is juicy and crispy on the outside. Good for a fast food to make when running out of time

Always looking for good salmon recipes, this one didn't disappoint. One modification, I used blackening seasoning instead of just the salt/pepper recommended. The lemon-butter sauce went great with it.
