Salmon with Lemon Cream Sauce

I have this friend, she is a chef in New York. She is truly amazing and talented  I ask her a billion cooking questions a week. I have been needing lots of help cooking a fish and not destroying it, like I usually do. Thanks a million Molly Delmonte for teaching me how to make an amazing salmon fillet!

Salmon with Lemon Cream Sauce

4-5 medium sized salmon fillets, skin or no skin
1/2-1 lemon
1 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tblsp butter
1 Tblsp olive oil

 Preheat oven to 400. Dust salmon fillets with flour and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat skillet and add butter and olive oil. Once pan is hot, medium high heat, add salmon fillet. If using skin, add in pan skin side down first. Pan sear fish for approximatly 3 to 5 minutes or until lightly golden brown, then flip. After 3 minutes put salmon with pan in the oven for approximatly 12 minutes.
While salmon is baking, place cream and lemon juice (or you can add lemon slices) and a little salt and pepper in a sauce pan and reduce for 8-10 minutes on med heat until thick and reduced. Serve over top of salmon fillet. EnJOY!
