Pan-Fried salmon

Salmon is becoming an international food, thanks to fish farming all around the world. The biggest producing country is Norway with well over million tons exporting all over the world. Salmon is rich in Omeg3 and therefor very healthy to eat. We recommend at least one meal of salmon every month of the year.


4 (6-oz.) salmon fillets, patted dry with a paper towel

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 c. white wine

Juice of 1 1/2 lemons, divided

2 cloves garlic, sliced

Pinch red pepper flakes

2 tbsp. butter

1 lemon, cut into rounds, for serving

2 tbsp. freshly chopped dill, for garnish



  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. When oil is hot but not smoking, add salmon skin-side up and season with salt and pepper. Cook salmon until deeply golden, about 6 minutes, then flip over.
  2. Add wine, juice of 1 lemon, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Bring to a simmer and cook, basting salmon occasionally with a spoon. When salmon is opaque, remove from skillet. Add butter and remaining lemon juice to pan and whisk to combine with the sauce. Let simmer until thickened slightly, 2 minutes.
  3. Serve fish drizzled with pan sauce and topped with fresh lemon slices and dill.
