  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 salmon filets
  • a pinch or two of salt and pepper
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon fresh dill chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh basil chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced


  • Heat a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium high heat and add the olive oil.
  • Pat the salmon filets dry with some kitchen paper towel and season the salmon filets with the salt and pepper.
  • When the skillet is hot, add the salmon filets to the pan and let them cook for about 5 minutes on the first side.
  • While they cook, mix the butter, dill, parsley, basil and garlic in a bowl.
  • Flip the salmon filets after 5 minutes and place a spoonful of the garlic herb butter mixture on top of each salmon filet as it cooks on the other side for about 5 more minutes.
  • The butter will melt into a sauce. Spoon the sauce over the salmon filets as they finish cooking (5-7 minutes per side will do it). Measure the internal temperature to make sure each filet reaches 62 degrees Celsius (145 Fahrenheit).
  • Serve with a salad, rice, potatoes, pasta, or your favourite side dish.
