Basil-Buttered Salmon

Ingredients
4
fresh or frozen skinless salmon, halibut, or sea bass fillets (about 1 1/4 pounds)
1/2
teaspoon salt-free lemon-pepper seasoning
2
tablespoons butter, softened
1
teaspoon snipped fresh lemon basil, regular basil, or dill or 1/4 teaspoon dried basil or dill, crushed
1
teaspoon snipped fresh parsley or cilantro
1/4
teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel or lime peel

Directions

  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with lemon-pepper seasoning.
  2. Place fish on the greased unheated rack of a broiler pan. Turn any thin portions under to make uniform thickness. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 5 minutes. Carefully turn fish over. Broil for 3 to 7 minutes more or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together butter, basil, parsley, and lemon peel. To serve, spoon 1 teaspoon of the butter mixture on top of each fish piece. Cover and refrigerate remaining butter mixture for another use. Makes 4 servings.
