One of the best gifts I received over the holiday’s was a box of Sitka Wild Alaskan Coho Salmon and  Wild Alaskan Pacific Cod straight from the fishermen in Sitka Alaska. To my delight, I opened the special cold delivery box to find beautiful pieces of flash frozen Salmon and Cod. My mouth watered, just thinking of all the ways I might cook these beauties. Since we’re back to busy work and school schedule’s I wanted to share a super simple Salmon recipe that will have you out of the kitchen fast. It is such a crowd pleaser here at my house, and I’m betting your family is going to love my Pan Seared Lemon Pepper Salmon too.

Winner, Winner, Salmon Dinner!

Wild Alaskan Coho SalmonWild Alaskan Pacific Cod

My husband and I love to serve fish and seafood often, so to receive a box of sustainably caught wild Alaskan seafood is such a treat because we can trust where this fish came from. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve seen seafood on sale and before we make a purchase we must know where it came from. If we can’t find that out on the label, or by asking the seafood counter person, we don’t buy it. Knowing where your seafood comes from is vital to your health, so I’ll start with that point.

Wild Alaskan Coho Salmon

One: We’re Wild- Wild caught from the pristine waters of Southeast Alaska and the North Pacific.

Two: Sustainable- Harvested using low impact methods to minimize negative ecological impact, exclusively within sustainable fisheries.

Three: Traceable: Our relationships ensure that your fish is traceable to the boats of our fisher men-owners and trusted community partners.

Four: Fishermen-Focused: Our fish are individually caught by one of our fisherman-owners or partner fisherman. Fishermen ownership makes us distinct from our competition and creates a more just system that values our fishermen’s hard work.

Five: Just: Our fishermen receive an average of 20-30% more for their harvest, which can equate to $10,000 extra income in a given season.

Six: Convenient- Home delivery directly your door, with recipes and a newsletter about the fishermen who caught that month’s share.

Seven: Conscious- Carbon offsets purchased and 1% of revenue donated to efforts promoting small-scale fisheries and conservation in Alaska.

Now, to the Pan Seared Lemon Pepper Salmon recipe! 

Pan Seared Lemon Pepper Salmon:

Prep Time- 4 minutes Cook time: 20 minutes 

Pan Seared Lemon Pepper Salmon dinner


½ to ¾ pound of Sitka Salmon
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Butter
1 Medium Garlic clove, chopped
1 Tablespoon of Lemon Pepper Seasoning * has salt in it*
1 Pinch of Salt if needed
1 Medium Lemon sliced for garnish


Take Salmon from packaging and pat dry with paper towels.
Cut into serving size pieces.
Sprinkle Lemon Pepper on flesh side of Salmon and set aside.
Place heavy skillet on medium high heat.
Add Olive Oil and Butter to skillet.
Add Chopped garlic to warm skillet.
Cook garlic for 1 minute.
Add Salmon pieces to skillet, skin side up.
Cook for 4 minutes.
Turn Salmon and cook for an additional 4 minutes but start checking for doneness at the 2-minute mark since pan temperatures vary.
Pull same from skillet when it is seared on outside, slightly pink on inside and flakes easily with a fork.
Serve immediately with lemon garnish and sides. For my dinner, I chose what I knew my family would love, mashed potatoes and corn. This Salmon recipe would do well in a salad also! I plan to serve a Salmon Salad for lunch Saturday if we have any leftovers.

If you love Salmon like we do, you'll understand when I say that Sitka Salmon is a superior Salmon! The texture is creamy smooth, there is no fishy smell or taste. In fact, I was tempted to take a bite of the raw Salmon  and may make some Salmon Tartare soon!

I hope you’ll take a moment to pin and save this recipe for a quick and simple dinner option soon. If you have a chance to shop with Sitka Salmon Shares using my coupon code, please come back and leave a comment letting me and them know.
