    wash the salmon with water, blot dry with paper towel, put plenty of salt and pepper then dredged in flour. Fry slowly in butter (start with flesh side down, when brown turn over and put skin side down till crispy and cooked through). Take out fish, in same pan add a bit of white wine to get up all the brown bits, let cooke down, add a scoop of cream cheese, a chug of cream, plenty of dill, a pinch of chilli pepper and a tsp of sugar. and more black pepper. Heat through and pour over fish. YUM YUM!! I also sometimes add a big spoonful of dijon mustard or honey mustard. Even yummier...

    Salmon is so delicious you hardly have to do anything to it to produce a "gourmet" meal. Here's a real easy way to cook it. Rub your salmon all over with a bit of extra virgin olive oil then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Set aside. Heat equal amounts of butter and olive oil in a skillet. Saute about a teaspoon of dried or a tablespoon of fresh rosemary in the butter/oil mixture until it's moist and smells nice. Add the salmon and cook until the bottom is lightly brown and crusty. Flip over and cook the other side. If the bottom gets brown before the center is done, turn heat down and cover skillet with a lid till the inside is done. How long it takes depends on how thick your salmon is. If the rosemary gets too crispy you might want to remove it before serving. Bon appetit!

    This is my favorite easy salmon recipe. I usually have it with fluffy white rice, bread and a vegetable like this:
