This month is fish!  All the time!  Every Monday!  Or Tuesday, as the case may be, as we enter our third month of Food Mondays.

Frankly, I’m too lazy to type the recipe out.  I got it from a library cookbook called Pure Flavor.  Basically, you melt some butter.  Mash in some capers, lemon zest, herbs, salt and pepper, and garlic powder.  Brush this on one side of a piece of salmon (or, you know, multiple pieces for multiple people).  Set it in the fridge for about 5 minutes.

Cook in a skillet on medium high, about 3 minutes, butter-side down.  Brush more of the rub on the top side, then flip and cook another minute.  Enjoy.

I was a little worried because the first side got a little blackened, but the inside was perfectly cooked and the outside nicely crisp.  I threw some green beans in the pan after the salmon came out and the leftover rub flavored them nicely.  Ate with pasta tossed with parsley and butter.
