Using a Grill Pan and Salmon

When it comes to cooking outdoors I can take most everything Mother Nature can throw at me. However, when it is windy, cold and wet, I draw the line. But, I still want to grill. So, I reach for my trusty grill pan. Yes, you can grill indoors to some extent, but it is better than nothing.

One recipe I love to cook is salmon and it comes out wonderful. Here's the recipe for a Lemon Garlic Salmon dish.

1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons lemon pepper
4 (4 ounce) fillets salmon
2 lemon

Season salmon fillets on both sides with lemon pepper.
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium high heat. Stir in garlic. Place salmon in pan. Cook for 10 minutes per inch of thickness, or until fish flakes when tested with a fork.
Flip fillets halfway through cooking to brown on both sides. Sprinkle with lemon juice before serving.

Suggestions for Sides
Jasmine Rice with fresh chopped parsley. Very simple and very elegant.

I do own the following grill pan recipe book and it has some great recipes in it.
