  • 4 pieces salmon fillet
  • 3/4 cup salted butter
  • 4 sprigs thyme
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 fresh lemon


  • Combine salt, ground black pepper, and garlic powder in a small bowl mix well.
  • Arrange the salmon fillet in a plate. Rub the garlic powder mixture all over the salmon. Let it stay for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Melt the butter in a pan. Add the oil. Set the heat between low and medium.
  • Gently add the salmon fillet and thyme in the pan. Do not use high heat when cooking with butter because it has a tendency to get burnt quickly. Cook each side of the salmon fillet for 7 to 10 minutes (in low to medium heat) or until the fish starts to brown.
  • Remove from the frying pan. Arrange in individual plates. Squeeze lemon juice on top.
  • Serve with white or brown rice and salad.
