Hi everyone! Remember me? I know I haven't posted anything for a super long time, but now that school is over for the summer, I am gradually starting to get my life back :) I am going to start blogging again, but it won't be as frequent as before. Thanks for sticking with me!
I wanted to share with you a favorite and very versatile recipe. It isn't the salmon, but is actually the butter compound used to baste the salmon with!
This simple butter mixture is great on so many different foods and is very kid friendly. It's wonderful on pasta, different types of fish, grilled shrimp, biscuits, corn on the cob, in vegetable sautes and many other dishes. Be creative! You can make it in advance and keep it in the fridge. Just use what you need and store the leftovers for a different use (within a few days, that is).
Basil Lemon Butter
8 T unsalted butter, softened, but not melted
8 fresh basil leaves, chopped
Zest of one lemon
Juice of one lemon
1/4 tsp to 1/2 tsp Kosher salt (or to taste)
Fresh black pepper, to taste
