2.  Season salmon fillets on both sides with salt and pepper.  Place in skillet, skin side down, cooking 3 fillets at a time.

3.  Cook for 6 minutes without moving the fish. You can cover the skillet to avoid splattering, though this will cause the fish to cook faster. 

4.  With a spatula, flip the salmon fillets over and cook for 2 more minutes.  Transfer the fillets to a plate and set aside.

5. Repeat with the remaining fillets and set aside.

 

FOR THE LEMON GARLIC CREAM SAUCE:

2.  Add the butter to the skillet and melt over medium heat.

3. Add the sauce to the skillet and bring to a boil then lower heat to a simmer.

4. Place the cooked salmon fillets back in the skillet.

5.  Cook for a minute, or until salmon is heated through.

6.  Remove from heat, place salmon on a plate and spoon sauce on top. Serve and enjoy!
