Lemon Caper Salmon

My mom gave me this recipe with the promise that it is both easy and delicious... she was right on both accounts! Mom is not a big salmon lover, and she just loved this recipe. Adam and I are HUGE salmon lovers, and we too thought it was great.

The beauty of this recipe is that you really can use as much or as little of all of the ingredients to suit your personal taste. We went heavy on the capers and lemon juice- yummy!

Lemon Caper Salmon

  • 1 Large Salmon fillet, with or without skin
  • 2-3 Tbsp. Butter
  • 1/4 C. Onion, chopped
  • 1-3 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
  • Capers to Taste

  1. Salt sides of the salmon fillet.
  2. In a skillet pan, put in 1 tsp. of olive oil and heat over medium. Add in salmon fillet, skin side down if there is skin.
  3. Cover and cook for about 7-10 minutes until the fish flakes easily.
  4. In the meantime, in a small pan, melt the butter.
  5. Add in the onions and saute until translucent.
  6. Stir in the lemon juice and capers.
  7. Serve salmon with sauce drizzled generously over it. (Do not serve with skin; the meat should come easily off the skin in the pan.) Crusty bread, noodles or rice are all great with it to soak up the sauce.
