Citrus Dill Honey Butter for SalmonBegin by preparing the Citrus Dill Honey Butter in advance, as it need to be chilled in order to slice. Do this by combining your softened butter, fresh dill, orange zest, fresh orange juice, and honey. Form your butter mixture into a log and place the butter on a piece of saran wrap. Roll it up like the photo to the left and refrigerate until solid. It’s as easy as that! When you are ready to use your Citrus Dill Honey Butter, cut the butter into medallions and place one on each piece of salmon to allow the buttery goodness to melt over the top.

To prepare the salmon, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place Salmon in greased baking dish and drizzle honey over each filet, spreading evenly over top. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

When ready to serve, top with the Citrus Dill Butter. This can be served with a multitude of size, but this recipe creator chose to serve with an arugula and mandarin orange salad. Enjoy!
