Pan Seared Lemon Butter Garlic Salmon

Pan Seared Lemon Butter Garlic Salmon is one of the easiest recipes I have tried cooking. My family isn’t really a fan of fish dishes but this one got them saying “yummy!”. The moment I heard about this recipe, I didn’t have any second-thoughts of trying out this dish. The combination of the flavors got me curious and I wasn’t wrong at all – it was indeed, yummy!

Here’s my take of the Pan Seared Lemon Butter Garlic Salmon – for the love of Hell’s Kitchen!



  • 4 slices of salmon fillets (I only have this cut but preferably, I would choose the fillet cuts)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 5 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter + 1 tsp butter for basting
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • lemon slices (for garnish)


  1. Pat dry both sides of the salmon and season with salt and fresh ground pepper.
  2. In a pan, melt butter in a medium heat.
  3. Add the minced garlic and saute until golden brown.
  4. Pour in the lemon juice and let it simmer for 3 minutes.
  5. Add in the honey. Stir and set aside.
  6. In a medium-sized non-stick pan, heat olive oil.
  7. Put in the salmon and cook both sides for about 2 minutes depending on the cut. Mine took a shorter time because I have a thinly sliced salmon but if you have the fillet kind of cut you may continue cooking for about 4 minutes.
  8. Add in the butter sauce. You may add another teaspoon of butter while constantly basting the salmon for 1 minute.
  9. Plate your salmon. Drizzle with its sauce and garnish with parsley and lemon slices.
  10. Serve immediately and enjoy!
