Salmon with capers and dill

Made this for supper last night. Just served it with new potatoes. Really quick, and delicious! The recipe comes from Easy Meals by Rachel Allen.

Serves: 4
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes

50g butter, diced
4 x 125g salmon fillets (with the skin left on if you wish)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 tbsp capers, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp lemon juice mixed with 6–8 tbsp water
4 tsp chopped dill

1. Place a frying pan on a medium to high heat. When it is just hot, add a couple of knobs of butter, very quickly followed by the salmon – with the presentation side down.
2. Fry for three to four minutes or until golden brown underneath, then turn over, season with salt and pepper and fry for another couple of minutes or until the fish is just cooked through.
3. Add the capers, along with the remaining butter and mixed lemon juice and water, and boil for one minute.
4. Season to taste, adding more lemon juice or water if necessary. Transfer the salmon onto warmed plates, stir the chopped dill into the sauce and pour over the fish to serve.
