Basil-Buttered Salmon

Makes: 4 servings
Prep 15 mins Broil 8 mins
Basil-Buttered Salmon
  • 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

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.
