Roasted Salmon With Dill Butter

Roasted Salmon with Dill Butter is an easy, yet elegant dinner. Serve it with the house salad and bread for a complete meal.

No one has to know this easy entertaining secret! It’s called compound butter, which is really just a fancy word for butter and herbs. Shhhhh!

And it’s perfect on many things, but this dill compound butter is perfect on roasted salmon. You put a little chunk of the cold butter on the hot salmon, and it melts delicious buttery-dill flavor into the fish. YUM. It’s also fantastic on grilled bread or fresh vegetables. You’ll definitely have some leftover, so try it with some roasted or sautéed vegetables.


  • 1/2 oz. container fresh dill

  • 8 Tbsp. butter, divided

  • 4 Tbsp. olive oil

  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tsp. dijon mustard

  • 1/8 tsp. salt and pepper

  • 1 small cucumber

  • 8 oz. grape tomatoes

  • 3 green onions

  • 1 small avocado

  • 4 oz. goat cheese

  • 1 head bibb lettuce (or 7 oz. bag)

  • 1 lemon

  • 32 oz. (2 lb.) salmon filet

  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 1/4 tsp pepper

  • loaf of artisan bread


  1. Pre-heat oven to 475 degrees.

  2. Prep ingredients:
    Chop fresh dill and mix with 7 Tbsp. of butter. Refrigerate.
    Mix the olive oil, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper into a small jar and shake until emulsified.
    Slice cucumber in half moons.
    Slice tomatoes in half.
    Thinly slice green onion.
    Cut avocado into small chunks.
    Wash and gently tear lettuce.

  3. Put the remaining 1 Tbsp. of butter onto a large baking sheet and put it into the oven. As soon as it foams (about 1 minute), take it out and place salmon, skin side down on the pan. Season with salt and pepper and bake for about 8-12 minutes, until it flakes easily.

  4. While the salmon is cooking, compile salads either on plates or on a large platter. Spread out lettuce and top with cucumber, tomatoes, green onion, avocado, crumbled goat cheese, and a sprinkle of fresh pepper. Top salad with dressing and place a dollop of dill butter on salmon and serve with toasted bread with olive oil or the extra dill butter.
