"This is such an easy recipe, but so good. And it is so quick to make. The cream sauce is so good, I keep this as a separate recipe and often serve it with poached eggs, grilled, steamed or roasted vegetables; asparagus it wonderful with this sauce. And, it is also very nice over grilled lamb chops."

Step 1

Sauce ... Start this first as it cooks the longest. Add the cream, honey and mustard to the sauce and bring to a light boil - reduce to a light simmer and let it go. Stir it every few minutes and the cream will naturally thicken on it's own. This is not a thick sauce but a thin drizzle. It is just a nice compliment to the fish.

Step 2

Fish ... Let it come to room temp, you don't want to cook COLD fish. Season it well with the lemon pepper and salt. I add a little extra plain pepper as I like to peppery flavor, but that is up to you.

Step 3

Cook ... As the sauce simmer, cook the fish. They don't take more than 10 minutes. Spray a non-stick saute pan with Pam or you could even use a butter spray, it isn't necessary to have that much in the pan. Bring to medium high heat and add the salmon, flesh side down. Cook 4-5 minutes and flip. Cook the other side until the salmon is firm, but still moist and juicy. Salmon is best when it is a tad under done as it continues to cook once it is removed from the heat.

Step 4

Serve ... Plate the salmon and drizzle with the sauce. ENJOY! And don't forget this sauce is so good over vegetables, poached eggs, other fish - not just salmon; and even over grilled lamb chops.
