Salmon and citrus are a match made in heaven. You can also use orange juice instead of the lemon juice in this light and healthy recipe.


  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 4-ounce skinless salmon fillets
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh dill
  • 1 pound broccoli, trimmed, quartered and cut into spears
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced


  1. Place 1/4 cup water in a measuring cup and then add the lemon juice and the sugar. Stir the mixture until the sugar has completely dissolved.
  2. Place the butter into a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the salmon on both sides with a few pinches of salt and pepper and then place in the pan.
  3. Cook the salmon for 3 minutes, flip, and then top with the lemon juice mixture, the dill and lemon slices. Cook for an additional 6 minutes then place on a serving plate.
  4. In the meantime, heat the remaining oil in another sauté pan over medium heat and add the broccoli and the garlic. Sauté the mixture for 9 minutes and then serve with the salmon.
