4 x4 ounce pieces steelhead trout, salmon, halibut, sea bass… or try
1 salmon fillet, cut in 3 or 4 chunks
4 zucchini spiralized
3 tablespoons butter, divided
3-4 clove garlic, minced
1 cup fresh chopped parsley, divided
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 teaspoon red crushed chili pepper flakes, optional
1 tablespoon hot sauce of your choice
fresh chopped scallion, for garnish

Recipe Instructions

Step 1: Thoroughly season salmon fillets on all sides with salt and pepper.
Step 2: Heat butter in a large cast-iron skillet. Add the pieces of salmon to the skillet, skin side first, and cook for 2-4 minutes on each side – depending on thickness. For best results, use a fish turner to flip salmon. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
Step 3:  In the same skillet, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Add lemon juice, hot sauce, minced garlic, half the parsley, and red pepper flakes (if you want).
Step 4:  Add the zucchini noodles and cook for 3 or 4 minutes, stirring regularly to coat in the butter sauce, until zucchini noodles are done but still crisp and juices have reduced a bit. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and garnish with more parsley. Push zucchini noodles on the side and add salmon fillets back to the pan. Reheat for a couple of minutes. Serve immediately lemon garlic butter Salmon garnished with chopped scallion and a lemon slice on the side. Enjoy!
