Super Simple Salmon

Boy, I have a lot of recipes to catch up on. I was in the mood for something quick and healthy yesterday and stumbled across this recipe for Super Simple Salmon. I followed the recipe exactly and it so so delicious! DH even said he would make it for himself when I'm away. I served the Salmon with brown rice and carrots I steamed above the rice. If you've never tried a rice cooker before, you are totally missing out. I could never get rice right and finally broke down and asked my DH for one for Christmas one year. My rice has turned out perfect ever since. Here's the rice cooker I use. It also has a steaming basket that you can steam vegetables in while cooking rice. I love it. Anyways, here the recipe I used for the salmon.

Super Simple Salmon
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 (6 ounce) salmon
2 tablespoons butter
4 lemon wedges
1. Stir together the garlic powder, basil, and salt in a small bowl; rub in equal amounts onto the salmon fillets.
2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook the salmon in the butter until browned and flaky, about 5 minutes per side. Serve each piece of salmon with a lemon wedge.

Here are the results:
