Lemony Salmon (A.k.a. Pink Princess Fish)

Total Time
Prep 2 mins
Cook 15 mins

After renaming salmon the Pink Princess Fish, my three year old gobbles it up going for seconds and thirds. She loves lemon and this recipe produces a very moist fish. I usually serve it up with a lemony broccoli, also known as fairy trees in our house.


  1. In a pan heat olive oil over medium-high heat and then add the salmon with half the lemon juice and salt, and some pepper.
  2. Let cook approximately 5-7 minutes depending on thickness and then flip over, adding the remaining lemon juice and salt, and some more pepper. Cook until browned, another 5-7 minutes and then flip and brown other side.

Made for Think Pink 213 Cancer Awareness tag game and this was a winner and so simple. I cut the recipe in half for DH and I and on DH's piece I did add a little brown sugar (he likes a little sweetness with this salmon) and put it in the oven like Bergy but I set the oven at 350 and baked it for about 18 minutes. Delicious! Served with brown rice/ red quinoa mix and fresh green beans.<br/>Thank you for posting.

I grilled the salmon on a piece of aluminum foil, skin down. This is my new favorite recipe for salmon. Quick and easy. Made for Think Pink tag for Breast Awareness Month 2010.
