If you love garlic, you'll love this recipe! We love both Salmon and Garlic and this tasty recipe combines them both and ends with a delicious flavorful dish. Enjoy!


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter.
  2. Stir in garlic.
  3. Sprinkle salmon fillets on both sides with lemon pepper seasoning.
  4. Place fish in the pan and cook on both sides for approx 3-5 minutes per side, until fish flakes when tested with a fork.
  5. Garnish with lemon wedges and serve.

As someone who was teased incessantly at her last job for loving garlic "too much", I thank for you this recipe. I whipped it up in about 15 minutes and no one could believe that I didn't slave for hours. It truly taste gourmet! I didn't have any cloves, so I used a nice chopped garlic paste from the local gourmet grocery and it worked really well. I love how you can add more pepper and tone down the garlic for relatives or guests that aren't as fond of garlic.

This was very good! I used 3-4 Tbsp. of minced garlic instead of whole cloves, substituted butter for margarine and added kosher salt to the salmon and it came out fantastic!

What a terrific and simple recipe! I love cooking, but had never tried to cook fish before. This was my perfect first shot at it. It turned out wonderful! The only thing I did different is I used 1 Tbsp butter and 1 Tbsp olive oil instead of 2 Tbsp butter, then also sprinkled salt on the fish.
