Recipe – Salmon in Garlic and Herb Butter
It’s been a very long time since I’ve posted. You all have my most sincere apologies – especially my friends who added me to their blogrolls or who were visiting daily. I’ve let you all down. But with the New Year comes a renewed interest in blogging, especially when it comes to my food blog. So without further adieu, back to the recipes.
Vita and I have been working out a lot lately and are on a big health kick. That means more seafood. Tonight, I prepared a Salmon sauteed with Butter, Dill and Garlic. Very simple, but big on flavor. Here we go.
- 2 salmon fillets
- 4 tablespoons of butter
- 1/4 cup of dill, chopped
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tsp Old Bay
1. In a large skillet, melt butter and begin to saute garlic over a medium high heat. As the butter melts season salmon fillets with salt and fresh black pepper.
2. Once all the butter has melted add the dill and place the fish in the pan.
3. Saute the fish for about 3-and-a-half minutes or until the edges begin to brown slightly. Turn over and saute for an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until the fish becomes fork tender.
That’s it. It’s incredibly simple, really delicious and very quick. The garlic adds a scampi like flavor, while the dill gives real depth to the rest of the fish. We served our salmon with our Green Been, Mozzarella and Tomato Salad (Recipe here).
