      I used skin on salmon and cooked in a garlic butter mix I had in the freezer with a little olive oil and the lemon pepper with the skin side down first to get a nice crispy texture for about 7 minutes and then about 3 to 4 minutes on the other side to finish cooking through. Simple but fantastic flavours that meld well together. Thank you Bev for a great recipe and to Annacia for recommending it it in I Recommend Tag game.

      DH prepared this tonight, as recipe was listed, while I worked on "Lemony Garlic Fingerling Potatoes". With Swiss chard from the garden, was a tasty and simple meal-- noted to do again soon ! Thanks for posting, bev.

      Simple, yet delicious! This is yet another of the recipes that affirm the fact that long lists of ingredients and complicated details do not necessarily make for the perfect gourmet meal. This recipe is quite the opposite, yet is as delicious as one could hope for. It would be perfect for the beginning chef who really wants to impress. I served this with Hipquest's Rice Pilaf, along with a simple tossed salad. A glass of wine, a decadent chocolate dessert, a candlelit table, soft music, and a couple in love would certainly make for the perfect romantic dinner. Thanks so much, Bev. I know I can count on you for a great recipe. ~Sue
