2 skinless salmon fillets, about 4 – 5 ounces each
2 tablespoons butter, softened (not melted)
1 tbsp chopped fresh dill (1 tsp dried)
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp lemon zest
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a small bowl combine butter, dill, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix well to combine. Place 1 tablespoon of this mixture in a separate bowl and set aside for later. Rub all sides of the fillets with the remaining butter and dill mixture.
Place in a lightly greased glass baking dish. Roast until cooked through, about 15 – 18 minutes, basting the fillets once, halfway through the cooking time, with pan drippings.
Remove from oven and season the fillets with the remaining butter and dill mixture. Garnish with lemon zest.
