Salmon for Kids (and Adults) Who Don’t Like Salmon


Salmon with Lime Butter Sauce

  • 1 large clove of garlic
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 16 ounces fresh salmon filets (coho or sockeye work great) cut into 4 portions, skin on
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest


Salmon with Lime Butter Sauce

In a blender, combine garlic, lime juice, salt and pepper and process until smooth. Add melted butter and blend until fully emulsified (about 20 seconds). Pour into a small dish and set aside.

Spray a non-stick sauté pan or grill pan with olive oil and place pan over medium heat. Once pan is heated almost to smoking, add salmon pieces, flesh side down and cook for 4 minutes or until salmon easily releases from pan when you try to flip it. Turn salmon over and brush lightly with lime butter sauce.

Continue cooking for another 4 to 6 minutes until salmon is cooked all the way through.

Brush with additional lime butter sauce and sprinkle with lime zest to serve.
