seared salmon in a lemon butter & caper sauce

Seared Salmon Piccata


A simple, fast and easy dinner for those hectic weeknights when you just don’t feel like cooking!


  • 4 (5 oz) Pieces of Salmon (skin on)
  • 2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 Shallot, diced
  • 1 Clove Garlic, minced
  • 1/3 Cup Chicken Broth
  • 3 Tbsp. Lemon Juice, fresh (+ some zest)
  • 2 Tbsp. Capers, rinsed and drained
  • 3 Tbsp. Butter
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Rinse the salmon, pat completely dry and let rest while gathering the rest of the ingredients.  When ready, season liberally with salt and pepper.  Heat up a non stick skillet over medium heat.  When the pan is hot, add the oil until shimmering.  Place the salmon flesh side down and allow to sear undisturbed for approx 4 minutes or until the skin starts to get a little golden.
  2. Flip the fish carefully with a flimsy fish spatula and cook another minute.  Remove to a plate.
  3. Add a little more oil to the pan if needed and add the shallot and garlic.  Cook on low heat until softened – approx. 1-2 minutes.  We don’t want the garlic or shallot to brown, just soften and infuse the garlic.
  4. Add the broth, lemon juice & zest, capers.  Simmer until warmed through.  Take the pan off the heat and add the 2 Tbsp. butter.  Swirl the pan until the butter is fully melted.
  5. Spoon over the salmon and serve immediately.
