My brother-in-law, Russell, is in town and he’s being cooking for us. He made this the other day. This salmon couldn’t be simpler, or tastier. Stay tuned for the leftovers!
Broiled Salmon with Fresh Herbs
(adapted from Fannie Farmer)
6 salmon steaks or filets
2 Tbs lemon juice
6 Tbs butter, melted
3 Tbs mixed chopped parsley, chives and dill
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat broiler. Brush 2 Tbs of the butter on the salmon before broiling. (I start it skin side down for filets, the skins come off easily when you turn the filets, or a minute after turning.)
Combine the rest of the butter, the chopped herbs, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Broil the salmon 4-5 minutes per side, pouring the herbed butter over the salmon 2-3 minutes before fish is done. Serve with its pan juices and lemon slices, accompanied by rice or boiled new potatoes.
