February 12-Citrus Salmon with Broccoli

This is one of my new favorites. The flavor of the salmon was perfection. It was easy to make. It was done in less than 25 minutes. It's healthy. An obvious, all-around win!

The original recipe comes from Better Homes and Gardens All Time Favorites 2013 Cookbook.

Citrus Salmon with Broccoli
1 lemon
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp butter
4 4-oz skinless salmon fillets 
Black pepper
1 tbsp snipped fresh dill
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb broccoli, trimmed
4 cloves garlic, pealed and sliced

1. Slice half the lemon into thin slices and set aside. Juice remaining half of the lemon into a 1-cup measure; Add water to equal 1/2 cup. Stir in sugar and set aside.
2. In a very large nonstick skillet heat butter over medium-high heat. Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. Add to skillet. Cook 2-3 minutes or until bottom is golden brown. Turn fillets. Add lemon juice mixture. Top with snipped dill and lemon slices. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook 5-6 minutes more or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
3. Meanwhile, in another skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add broccoli and garlic to skillet. Cook over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until crisp tender, turning often. Serve salmon with broccoli; Pour pan juices over salmon. 

Voila! A 25-minute dish that tastes like it took hours. Enjoy!
