Quick Lemon Garlic Salmon

Today I’m going to shake things up a bit—it’s time for Lemon Garlic Salmon!  Doesn’t that sound fresh and new? 

With a mellow garlic flavor, rich sauce and lemon-y brightness--not to mention healthy omega-3, Lemon Garlic Salmon is a winner.

Lemon Garlic Salmon

Okay, I must admit–this recipe is based (almost entirely) on the Chicken Piccata I’ve been making for years.  Only made with salmon.  Dressed up with a new name and a dash of wine.  For luck.  

You see, modifying recipes has a history in my house.  A few years back, I made spaghetti with garbanzo bean sauce.  It was delicious but my kids declared, “that’s not spaghetti.”

Then they made three sets of faces, tasted, and scowled again.

Moving forward a couple months, I re-tried the dish, but this time, called it “Garbetti.”  Now three kids laughed at the funny name, and promptly dug in.  Success!

I guess people with branding expertise would not be surprised.  So, since Salmon Piccata sounds like something your grandmother would make, today we are having Lemon Garlic Salmon.

With a mellow garlic flavor, rich sauce and lemon-y brightness–not to mention healthy omega-3, Lemon Garlic Salmon is a winner.  Whatever you call it.

An easy dinner!

And everything old is new again.

Ingredients
  1. 4 6-ounce pieces of salmon
  2. 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  3. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  4. 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  5. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  6. 2 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  7. 1 cup chicken broth
  8. 1/2 cup dry white wine
  9. 1 lemon
  10. 1 tablespoon capers
Instructions
  1. Combine flour, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge salmon in flour until evenly coated; reserve any excess flour.
  2. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add oil and heat until hot, but not smoking. Sauté salmon until golden brown on both sides and thoroughly cooked, about 8 minutes. Remove from pan and keep warm.
  3. Add garlic to pan and cook for 1 minute, or until fragrant, but not brown. Stir in reserved flour, then add chicken broth, wine and juice from half of the lemon. Bring to a boil, scraping the bottom to remove any browned bits and cook until slightly thickened. Slice the remaining half lemon into at least 4 slices, then stir in lemon sections and capers, cooking until just warm.
  4. Spoon sauce over fish, top with a lemon slice and serve.
