I am so excited to be sharing recipes with you all. This week we are making DIY Italian Seasonings. I’ll be sharing an easy salmon recipe that you can use your seasonings on, and a lemon dill butter to top it all off with. Easy, simple, and quick! Before I begin, I implore you to make sure you use sustainable salmon (you can find out more from globalsalmoninitiative.org/en if you’re unsure of why) but in a nutshell current fishing methods are causing big problems in the industry and change is absolutely necessary. You can make a large batch of this salmon and have it meal prepped for the whole week. The lemon butter, which we are putting on top of the salmon, can be used in SO many ways. You can add it to rice, vegetables, and potatoes; even use it to season roasted chicken! Store it in the freezer for a convenient and quick way to add flavor to any dish in a flash.
For the Italian Seasoning:
2 teaspoons dried rosemary
2 teaspoons anise seed
2 Tablespoons dried oregano
2 Tablespoons dried basil
2 Tablespoons garlic powder
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir. Store the seasoning in a jar.
For the Salmon:
5 Salmon Filets
1 Tablespoon of my DIY Italian seasoning mix or TT
Salt and Pepper TT
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Lemon wedges (optional)
For the Butter:
½ Stick of butter
1 Tablespoon packed with lemon zest
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1 teaspoon minced garlic
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
In a small bowl mix all the ingredients for the butter together and set aside.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with the olive oil. Place the salmon skin side down and cook for 3 minutes then flip and reduce the heat to medium. Cook another 3 minutes. If you like your salmon well done cook an additional 2 minutes. Transfer the fish to a plate and spoon some of the butter over the top. Serve with a lemon wedge.
