SALMON WITH DIJON BASIL BUTTER
We eat salmon at least once a week in our family. It is a great source of high quality protein and a place to get heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids. I love this preparation and I find myself making extra to put on my salads the next day.
Makes 4 servings
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
¼cup fresh basil (loosely packed), thinly sliced
1 (1 ½-2 pound) salmon fillet, skin on
Salt and fresh ground black pepper
2. Place salmon on a double layer of foil and season with salt and pepper.
Pour butter over salmon.
3. Heat grill to medium-high and place salmon on grill and close lid for 7-12
minutes(depending on thickness ofsalmon), or until just cooked
through. Alternately, bake at 450 degrees.
