Blackened Lemon Pepper Salmon

With both boys in little league, baseball season can quickly turn my household upside down if I don’t stay on my toes!  At least twice a week we have what I refer to as “baseball dinner”, which means that we eat something that was prepared quickly and consumed later than typical.  I am constantly on the prowl for quick & healthy dinner options for my so-called “baseball dinners”.  This recipe for Blackened Lemon Pepper Salmon fits the criteria perfectly!  The crispyness combined with the juiciness of this filet will not leave you disappointed. I promise.

INGREDIENTS:

3 TBSP butter

4 (5-7 oz in size) Boneless Skinless Salmon fillets. *Wild caught when possible. I purchased mine (from Costco) with the skin on and removed it at home.

Salt & pepper

1/2 tsp Lemon Pepper

Juice from 1/2 Lemon

Lemon wedges for garnish
DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter in a cast iron pan over med-high heat
  • Using tongs, dredge salmon fillets in the hot butter and set on a plate
  • Season both sides with salt, pepper & lemon pepper
  • Carefully place the fillets back into the hot pan and cook on each side for aprox 2-3 minutes.
  • Squeeze lemon juice over the top
  • Enjoy!

NOTE: Preparing this recipe as directed will create a large amount of smoke. It’s a good idea to crack open a window & turn on your exhaust hood
