2 pieces salmon, about 5-6 oz

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

1/2 teaspoon lime zest

Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

2. Sautee the Salmon Season the salmon with salt and pepper and set aside. Remove the citrus butter from the refrigerator, unwrap, and cut into 4 equal slices. Set aside. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil blend in a 10″ sauté pan over medium heat until the oil begins to shimmer. Carefully place the salmon filets presentation (top) side down in the pan. Allow the salmon to cook developing a nice crust, about 4-6 minutes.

If the filet is very thick, the salmon can be seared and finished in a 350℉ oven. Transfer the salmon to a plate and top with the citrus butter. Serve immediately.
