Lemon Basil Salmon Recipe

    4 Servings


  • 4 Salmon Fillets, 4 ounces each, pin bones removed
  • 3 tablespoons Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Fresh Chopped Basil
  • 1 teaspoon Minced Garlic
  • zest and juice from one Lemon


  1. Preheat the broiler on your oven to high. Place your fillets on a baking sheet skin side down
  2. Place the remaining ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds, or until the butter is melted.
  3. Pour the butter over the salmon filets and place them under the broiler until the fish turns opaque and flakes easily with a fork, about 5-10 minutes depending on how hot your broiler is and how close your oven rack is to it. 


  • Dairy free butter is fine, or extra virgin olive oil to make it paleo
