Pan Seared Lemon-Soy Salmon

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Sandyg61

Very easy with lots of flavor. I usually serve this over spinach sauted with garlic. The prep time includes 30 minutes for the salmon to marinate.

Tasty! I not only used the lemon & soy, I also topped my salmon peices with lemon slices. I did pop these under the grill instead of pan frying becuase the stove top was in full use, and with a little added cooking time these were cooked to perfection. Please see my Rating Sytem: 4 stars for great taste, and quick and easy preperation. I will be making these again, Thanks!
