Grilled Salmon

Texas Roadhouse Copycat Recipe

1 fresh salmon filet
salt and pepper

Lemon Pepper Butter:
1/4 pound butter
2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley
pinch black pepper
pinch white pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt

Melt butter in a non stick skillet until the butter is smokey hot (almost brown).  Season salmon filet lightly with salt and pepper on both sides.  Place salmon filet into skillet and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side (until filet yields to gentle pressure).  Remove from skillet and spoon lemon pepper butter over filet.  Serve with a lemon wedge.

NOTE:  Cooking the salmon over high heat with the seasoning and butter will create a beautiful crust on the fish!


  1. can you correct the butter amount? 1/4 what?

  2. 1/4 cup sounds like an awful lot of butter just to saute the salmon. I would say possibly 1 Tablespoon.

  3. 1/4lb believe it or not is a stick of butter

  4. Butter keeps it from over cooking and being dry
