Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper to taste.
Place the salmon fillets, skin side up, in the pan. Cook undisturbed for 5 minutes, or until a golden brown crust forms.
Carefully flip the salmon and cook for an additional 5-6 minutes or until fish is opaque and easily flakes.
Remove the salmon from the pan. Add the butter to the pan and melt.
Add the garlic to the pan and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Stir in the lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.
Place the salmon back in the pan. Spoon the sauce over the top. Serve.
