  • 24 oz boneless salmon thawed
  • 20 oz baby potatoes quartered and peeled
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter divided into 2
  • 1/2 tsp salt divided in 2
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper divided in 2
  • 1 tbsp dill finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp scallion finely chopped


  • Place 20 oz potatoes in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for 7 minutes.
    step 1: Microwave the quartered potatoes
  • Carefully take the potatoes out and remove the plastic wrap (it’s hot). Melt 2 tbsp of butter in a skillet. Add the potatoes, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, and 1 tbsp dill. Stir well and cook for 8 minutes.
    step 2: Cook the potatoes with butter and seasoning
  • Rub the salmon fillets with 1/4 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp black pepper. Place 1/4 cup flour in a large dish. Use your hands to coat all sides of the fillets in flour. Shake to remove excess flour.
    step 3: Season the fillets and flour them
  • Add 1 tbsp olive oil to the skillet and turn the heat to medium. When it’s hot (it sizzles when you drop in some flour), gently place the fillets into the skillet to cook. If you feel like you’re crowding the pan, do this in batches. They need 3 minutes on both sides (6 minutes in total).
    step 4: Fry the fillets
  • Add 2 tbsp of butter, 1 tbsp of lemon juice, 1 tsp garlic, 2 tbsp scallions, and stir to cook for 2 minutes.
    step 5: Add butter, garlic, lemon juice, and scallions to the fillets
  • Serve: place one fillet on each serving dish, and divide the potatoes evenly across the dishes. Garnish with more dill, if desired.
    step 6: serve
