Quick & Easy But Healthy Crispy Salmon with Herb Butter

Salmon is a delicious, healthy fish that can be cooked in a lot of ways. This easy, healthy salmon recipe features crispy skin and is flavored with simple herb butter. It’s a delicious, weeknight-friendly meal that family and friends will enjoy.



  1. In a small bowl, mix together and combine 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter, oregano, thyme, and half the garlic powder. Put aside.
  2. Set a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add one tablespoon of olive oil and the remaining butter. Put the salmon fillets skin side down in the hot skillet after patting them with paper towels. 

    Salt and pepper to taste, along with the remaining garlic powder.
  3. After about 4-5 minutes of cooking, the salmon skin should be nicely browned and crispy. Cook the salmon for another 3-4 minutes on the other side, or until golden brown and cooked through.

    Tip: To test if the fillets are ready, use a fork to flake them.
  1. Take the skillet off the heat and transfer the salmon to a platter. Then, set the skillet over medium heat and add the remaining olive oil. Add garlic, zucchini, yellow squash, and tomatoes. Season and mix in with salt and black pepper, to taste. Stir occasionally, for roughly 4 – 5 minutes, until the vegetables are tender and nicely browned.
  2. Bring the salmon back to the skillet. Drizzle some of the herb butter over the fillets and add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice over them. Top the dish with some freshly chopped parsley as a garnish and serve immediately. 

Bon Appetit!
