Applebee's Copycat Recipe
4 (5 ounce) salmon fillets
Melted butter, as needed
Pepper, to taste
Granulated garlic, to taste
Salt, to taste
Garlic butter, as needed
Preheat skillet or grill to 550 degrees F.
Brush raw salmon filets with melted butter. (Do not reuse butter. Wash brush before using to dab with garlic butter before serving.)
Shake/sprinkle salt, pepper and garlic over each side of the salmon. Place salmon in pan or on grill. Cook fish approximately four minutes (varies with weight and thickness), turning halfway at two minutes on grill to achieve "diamond" grill marks.
Turn salmon over gently and cook approximately three minutes, turning half way through.
Remove from heat and lightly dab top surface with garlic butter before serving.
Serve with your favorite side dishes.
