Pan Grilled Salmon with Zesty Dill Butter

Recently, my hubby bought some expensive oranges. Harukra oranges to be specific. I want to get all I can from these oranges so I decided to save the zest to make this dish.

  • 2 piece Salmon
  • A pinch of Salt and a dash of Ground Black Pepper

Seasoned Butter:
  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Dill, chopped
  • Zest of  a Citrus Fruit like lemon, lime or orange
  • 1 tablespoon Salted Butter, softened

How to do it:
  1. Prepare the Seasoned Butter by mixing all ingredients together well.
  2. Return the butter to the fridge if it is too soft; ie; cannot hold it's shape.
  3. Clean salmon and pat dry.
  4. Rub salmon with salt and ground black pepper before pan grilling.
  5. Sparingly spread some butter on salmon for grilling just to prevent sticking.
  6. Pan grill salmon till just well done.
  7. Serve with a teaspoon of soften seasoned butter.

The potato served here with the salmon is parboiled with skin intact till tender. It is pan-grilled together with the salmon.
