Pan-seared Salmon Recipe With Orange Butter Sauce Is Gourmet in Less Than 30 Minutes

This perfectly pan-seared salmon is bathed in a citrusy, orange and lemon butter sauce. Oh. My. With minimal ingredients, this easy salmon recipe is ready in about 30 minutes and will impress your family.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 to 25 minutes
Total Time: 25 to 30 minutes

Servings: 4 

Ingredients

  • 4 salmon filets
  • 1 orange, juiced and zested
  • 1 lemon, juiced and zested
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped shallot
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 sticks butter, cut into pieces

Here's how to make it:

  1. To make the orange butter sauce, put the zest, juice, wine and shallots into a saucepot. Over low heat, cook until shallots are soft and liquid reduces slightly, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. Turn the heat off and slowly start whisking in the butter, a piece at a time, until melted and thoroughly combined. Season with salt and pepper. 
  2. Heat about 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a nonstick skillet. Season the salmon with salt and pepper. Cook the fish about 4 to 5 minutes per side or until desired doneness. Spoon the orange butter sauce over the fish and garnish with chopped chives and more zest, if desired.
