Lemon Pepper Salmon

1 T Olive Oil
1 T Butter
2 Garlic Cloves, Chopped finely
2 cups Sliced Mushrooms
4 4 oz Salmon Fillets or your favorite fish
1/4 t Lemon Pepper Seasoning
1/4 t Paprika
Pinch of Cayenne Pepper
Salt & pepper to taste
1 Large Tomato, chopped
2 Green Onions, Sliced
1/4 cup Chopped Fresh Basil

In a small bowl mix lemon pepper, paprika, cayenne, salt & pepper. Set aside.

In a large skillet melt butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and mushrooms and saute until mushrooms are tender. Place fillets over mushrooms and sprinkle with spice mixture.

Cover skillet and cook over medium heat for 5-10 minutes or until fish is cooked through.

Combine tomato, green onions & basil.

I like to serve this on a bed of brown rice, topped with the mushrooms, then the fish fillet and sprinkled with the tomato, green onion & basil mixture. Accompanied by fresh spinach sauteed in olive oil, garlic, & sprinkled with lemon juice.

Background: We like to have fish at least once a week, so I am always looking for fresh and tasty fish dishes. This one fits the bill! I like it with Mahi Mahi and Sole, too. xo
