This recipe is simple yet delicious. I skipped the capers and used a normal non-stick frying pan. Poured the olive oil into the pan instead of coating the salmon with it. Perfectly accompanied by my favorite salad composed of tomatoes, onions, feta cheese with lemon juice and olive oil. Thanks!

This dish is wonderful! It is so quick and easy and full of flavor. The only thing I would do different is wait a little longer to add the capers because they got a bit too over-cooked.

A great, simple recipe that can be modified for your own preferences. I like to season my salmon with garlic powder, pepper, and lemon juice prior to frying. I add the oil to the pan rather than the salmon and cook over medium-high heat for 3 minutes on each side. With this method the salmon will be slightly translucent in the center. I add the capers for the last minute of cooking. I like to serve this over salad with tomatoes, onion, kalamata olives, avocado, feta cheese, and champagne vinaigrette dressing.
