Easy Pan-fried Salmon in Garlic Butter and Dill

I served the salmon with green beans and chestnut mushrooms in paprika. It took me not more than 30 minutes to serve this easy lunch on a Sunday. I love easy yet yummy dishes and its healthy as well! No carbs here! So the garlic butter is allowed :p

Now getting a crispy skin on top and still a moist fish is not has as hard as some people make it sound. All you need to do is try it once, and you will understand how easy it is! This one is perfect for when you invite friends for lunch or dinner and want to impress them!


All you need is
2 pieces of salmon - seasonned with salt and pepper
2 cubes of garlic butter
handful of Dill - chopped
2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste


1)    Heat a pan with olive oil, add 1 cube of garlic butter, when pan is hot, add fish skin side down. Let it crisp up for about 3 minutes (also depending on how large your fish is) turn the fish and let the other side cook.
2)    Take fish out, add the other cube of butter and dill to the pan, add salt and pepper to taste, pour over fish and serve with anything you like.

Green beans and Chestnut Musrooms in Paprika
250g green beans
250g chestnut musrooms - halved
1 clove of garlic - minced
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon of paprika

1) Heat a pan with olive oil, add garlic, green beans and mushrooms. Stir fry for 1 minute, then add the paprika, salt and pepper. Add some water and let it steam cook it and thicken.
