Servings 4 servings


  • 4 wild caught salmon filets 4-6oz each
  • 2 tbsp grass-fed butter or ghee
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced optional
  • 1/2 lemon juiced optional


  • Heat broiler and place rack 6 inches from broiler
  • Place parchment paper on a sheet pan and then salmon skin side down.
  • Brush each filet with olive oil and top with a pat of butter and sea salt. Add your garlic if you'd like it's optional.
  • Place in broiler for 5 minutes, might only need that if it's a thin filet. Once you see the white coming through and you can flake it with a fork you can take it out. I usually end up cooking 5-8 minutes so just watch it!
  • Finish with a squeeze of lemon and cracked pepper before serving!
