Lay the salmon filets in the skillet.  Sprinkle the salmon on both sides with the Lawry’s coarse garlic salt, and sprinkle of red pepper flakes.   Brush the top of the filets with melted butter.  Pan fry the salmon about 5 to 7 minutes on each side, until a crust forms on the salmon.  Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the salmon towards the end of cooking.  Turn, and sprinkle more lemon juice over the other half.  Remove the salmon filets to a platter and set aside.
