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.
