2020-04-30 18:29:11

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup ghee or butter if not on Whole30
  • 6-8 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • Sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 4 salmon filets about 6 ounces each patted very dry
  • Fresh cracked black pepper if desired
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh parsley minced
  • Fresh lemons thinly sliced for garnish

InstructionsMake the lemon garlic sauce:

  1. In a small saucepan melt ghee or butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté 1-2 minutes or until fragrant. Add in the chicken broth lemon juice and a few generous pinches of salt. Simmer this mixture until reduced by 1/3 to 1/2. The sauce will turn from a really thin liquid to a thicker more bubbly boil. Remove from heat and set aside.

Make the salmon:

  1. Remove the salmon from the fridge 10-20 minutes before cooking. Sprinkle both sides liberally with salt and season with fresh cracked black pepper if desired. Heat avocado oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat until shimmering.
  2. Carefully place salmon filets skin side up and cook until lightly browned on bottom about 2-3 minutes or until crispy. Use a spatula to carefully flip taking care not to flake off any flesh. Cook 3-4 minutes on second side or until skin is crisp and flesh begins to feel firm to the touch. Remove at this point for a salmon cooked around medium. Continue to cook until flesh easily flakes with a fork for a well-done salmon.
  3. Remove pan from heat and pour lemon garlic sauce over. Sprinkle with parsley and arrange lemon slices over if desired. Serve with skin or easily remove with a spoon and serve with more lemon garlic sauce and lemon slices from the pan.
