This is a winner! My neighbors almost passed out when I sent them this over for dinner!

"I served it over spahgetti. Everyone said over linguini. I also thickened it with some flour slurry. I used diced sweet onion. Pretty good. Also added salt and sugar to compensate for the lemon"

Preparation

Spray a grill pan liberally with pam spray and heat over med-med hi heat.

Lightly pepper and salt both sides of salmon

Put salmon on grill pan Do not touch fish after you have placed on grill. The fish will let you know when it is ready to flip by easily freeing from pan. If it is sticking, it is not ready to turn yet. Usually about 7 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of your filet or how you like your salmon prepared.

Sauce:

Melt one stick of butter and one tbsp of olive oil in pan over med hi heat.

Add Garlic and onions and cook until onions are soft and garlic starts to lightly brown. Add white wine, red pepper flakes and simmer for 5 minutes. Add lemon zest, lemon juice, capers, and dill and simmer another minute.

Pour sauce over salmon and garnish with lemon slices and dill if desired...enjoy!

Really great recipe and thanks for the salmon cooking tips. This is the first time I've gotten my salmon just right! Next time I make it I'm going to thicken the sauce with a little flour.

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent! I also added large scallops wrapped in bacon too. The best salmon I have ever had! Thank you!
