Salmon Roasted in Butter p. 583

Ingredients: butter, salmon fillet, salt, pepper, parsley.

This is about one of the easiest recipes ever. Seriously. I feel like I say “this dish is easy” in almost every post, but seriously, it is.

Simply melt some butter in a pan (about half a stick). Then put your salt and peppered salmon in, preferably with the skin still on. Cook six minutes on one side (at about 475 degrees) and three to six minutes on the other. Mine only took three, but they were smaller fillets.

I garnished with a squeeze of lemon juice and fresh parsley. Delish.

  1. I cooked the version with olive oil, but not this one yet. I think that a lot of butter are wasted here. I would melt one tablespoon of butter in a small cup using the microwave oven and brush the butter on the filets. Since you started baking in the last posting, I would like to point out a possible typo in the flan (creme caramel) recipe in page 886. The second sentence should read "Put 1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar.." instead of "1 cup of sugar". I cross checked with Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. Paul.
