1 pound wild Alaska king salmon cut into 4 oz filets

2 tsp salt

2 tsp tsp pepper

2 tbsp olive oil

Lemon Butter Garlic Sauce

1 tbsp butter

1/3 cup chicken stock

2 cloves garlic crushed

1/3 cup lemon juice

1/3 cup soy sauce

1 tbsp honey


Cut the wild Alaska king salmon into 4 oz filets and score the skin of the fish.

Drizzle the skin side of the salmon filet with olive oil

Add half a teaspoon of pepper and salt inside the score marks

Season the flesh side of the salmon filet with salt and pepper

Heat 1-2 tsp of olive oil on a hot frying pan and place the salmon filet skin side down. Let cook for 5-7 minutes

Flip the salmon filet to the flesh side, and let cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Remove and let rest.

Serve skin side up and drizzle with the lemon butter garlic sauce.

Lemon Butter Garlic Sauce

Add the butter to a hot frying pan or pot

Add the crushed garlic and stir, reducing heat to medium

add the water, stir, and let simmer for 1 minute

add the lemon juice, stir, and let simmer for 1 minute

add the soy sauce, stir, and let simmer for 1 minute

Add the honey, stir, and let simmer for 2 minutes.

Next, I heated up some butter in a hot frying pan and gently laid the filet down skin first. After letting it sear and cook for about five minutes, I turned it over and let it cook on the other side for about a minute or two. This resulted in a perfect, medium well center and crispy skin.

What About The Sauce?

Although the crispy skin may be the star of this recipe, the sauce that I made to go with it is just as important. There are many different sauces that you can use when cooking salmon. My favorite, however, is the lemon butter and garlic sauce that I am sharing today. It provides a perfect amount of flavor to complement the natural flavor of wild Alaska salmon, and it is easy to make. I finish it off with a touch of honey just so it has a slight sweetness to it as well.
