  • 1 stick butter, at room temperature (this works for both dairy and nondairy butter))
  • 1 Tbs. chives (fresh or dried)

  • 1/2 tsp. ground pepper
  • salt to taste (if you use salted butter, you may not need salt)


I always order grilled salmon at a local restaurant and it is SO delicious. I've tried to duplicate their results many times without success. The last time I ordered it, I saw a half melted pat of herbed butter (clearly my food has always sat under a warmer before because I never knew they topped their salmon with butter!), and it turns out that the herbed butter is the finishing touch that I was missing. Now, I use this herbed butter on all of my fish dishes, as well as steamed veggies and fried eggs. I hope you like it!
