Norwegian Salmon Recipe with Citrus & Dill
September 1, 2016 |
Holidays are just around the corner! Whether you’re looking for a break from all the heavy food about to come our way, or you need a beautiful dinner for two, this meal is the perfect option. This recipe combines Main Entrée’s Norwegian Salmon with a Citrus Dill Honey Butter. Not only does it look pretty, but it tastes delicious! This recipe was submitted by a Main Entrée regular- she loves the versatility of our salmon! (Also see her recipe for Maple Bacon Bourbon Salmon if you’re feeling a little decadent!)
Salt and Pepper
1/2 C Butter softened
1/2 t Fresh Dill
1/4 t Orange Zest
1/2 t Fresh Orange Juice
1 T Honey
Begin 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!
