When my hubby triumphantly brought home two large salmon from a fishing trip, I couldn't pass up the chance to have fresh salmon that very evening. Wanting to fix it a little differently than usual, I found this recipe by Deb Swanson at allrecipes.com. I've modified it slightly.
Serves: 6 Preparation time: 15 minutes Broiling time: 10-12 minutes
1-1/2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
6 (6 ounce) salmon fillets
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup white wine
1 teaspoons ground black pepper
2 teaspoons assorted fresh herbs, minced
2 tablespoons fresh dill, minced
1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
2. Place garlic and olive oil in a small microwave safe bowl and cook on High for 1 minute. Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat, and stir in the garlic mixture. Remove from heat; stir in the Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, white wine, black pepper, and herbs.
3. Place the salmon fillets skin-side down on an oiled broiler pan. Spoon about half of the butter sauce over the fillets, and sprinkle evenly with half of the fresh dill.
4. Broil in the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Spoon on the remaining butter sauce; broil until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
I hope you enjoy this dish. Let me know if you've tried it and how it turned out.
Good cooking to you,
