Lemon Pepper Crusted Salmon

I am always looking for new ways to prepare fish, especially salmon.  The lemon pepper seasoning makes a crispy crust on the fish.  I served it with some asparagus sauteed with shallots, lemon and a little butter and some basmati rice.

Lemon Pepper Crusted Salmon

Ingredients
2 6 oz. salmon filets
1/2 Tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons Lemon Pepper seasoning (I used Lawry’s)

Directions
-Heat a nonstick skillet over medium high heat and preheat broiler.
-Add olive oil and salmon, skin side down and cook for about 3 minutes until browned.
-Season top of filets with 1 tsp. each of lemon pepper seasoning.
-Flip and cook for another 3 minutes – do not move the filets in the pan.
-While the salmon cooks, remove the skin.
-Add the lemon juice to the pan and swirl to coat and pick up brown bits.
-Put the pan under the broiler until salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

    Beth – Basmati rice is an Indian white rice. It’s long grain and just a little more fragrant than regular white.
