Herb Crusted Salmon Filet w/ lime-cilantro butter

Here is the recipe for one of my favorite dishes. I’ll give the recipe for 4 portions. I usually use a 6oz. filet so adjust cooking time according to your filet size.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F

Herb Crust:
1/2 cup chopped basil
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 cup chopped nuts (i prefer pinenuts but walnuts work good too)
1T fine chopped garlic
3-4 tbl olive oil
Combine all ingredients, salt and pepper to taste.

Lime-cilantro butter:
4 T unsalted butter (room temp)
1 T lime juice
1T fine chopped cilantro
1 tsp. lime zest
Combine all ingredients, salt and pepper to taste

Take filets, skin side down and apply Crust ingredients evenly on flesh side, I usally make crust about 1/8 of an inch thick. On stovetop in a oven friendly sautee pan brown the filets herb side down over med-high heat using butter or better yet clarified butter. Carefully flip filets over, skin side down. Pop in oven and bake for approx. 7 minutes for med results. Longer or shorter for desired temp. Plate filets and serve with dollop of Lime butter on top.
