Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine butter, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add salmon pieces and toss to coat well. Let marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes.

  • Preheat broiler to high. 

  • Place the salmon pieces on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle any remaining marinade from the bowl over the salmon. (If the butter has solidified, microwave for 3 to 5 seconds to warm.) Broil the salmon 4 inches from the heat source until just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle with fresh herbs, if desired.
