Easy Pan Seared Lemon Pepper Salmon -KintheKitchen

10-Minute Lemon Pepper Salmon


  • 2 4 oz. salmon fillets
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


Heat oil in skillet for about 2 minutes over medium high heat.  Place salmon fillets in skillet and sprinkle with seasonings (be careful as the oil may splatter; I cover mine partially with a lid while cooking).  Cook on one side until golden brown, about 4 minutes, then flip with spatula and cook on the other side about 3-4 minutes until salmon is cooked through and firm.  Serve!  We like ours with a side of steamed or roasted vegetables and maybe some rice or quinoa.
