This dish features seafood that's a mealtime mainstay in our home area. If fresh salmon isn't available where you live, other fish varieties will work just as well.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 small garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 fish fillets (about 6 ounces each) (salmon or whitefish or cod)
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • Lemon wedges


  1. In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Saute garlic 1 minute. Place fish over garlic, cover and cook over low heat 3 minutes. Carefully turn fish; sprinkle with onions. Cover and continue to cook until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 2-3 minutes. Squeeze lemon over fish. Serve immediately.
