    Super easy, quick and delicious  -  11 Jul 2017


    quick, easy & delicious way to have salmon fast. Prep your sides first because these filets cook fast. I like to serve this fish with asparagus & seasoned brown rice.  -  01 Nov 2015


    This was a very tasty way to prepare Salmon! I added just a couple things when fixing mine: I used sea salt instead of regular salt, and used a little less than the recipe called for, and also added a chopped up clove of garlic to the butter in the saucepan. I allowed the butter and garlic to simmer a few minutes before added the filets. It was delicious! **I used a lb. of Salmon and had to double the ingredients to have enough for all three filets.  -  23 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
