Ingredients

  • 4 skinless salmon fillets
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • For the flavoured butter

  • 80g (3 oz) Kerrygold Pure Irish Salted Butter
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh chives
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Salmon and lemon were made for each other. Add fresh garlic with some herbs and you’ve got something special.  A summer BBQ sizzler, it also grills perfectly. The fresher the salmon the better. Preferably Irish, of course.
  1. To make the flavoured butter simply mix all the ingredients together, except the citrus juices. When all the ingredients have been thoroughly mixed, whisk in the lemon and lime juice until it has been incorporated into the butter. Soft butter is the key to ensure the juice mixes with the butter.
  2. Time to preheat the barbecue or grill.
  3. Barbecue or grill the salmon for 3-4 minutes per side, brushing with olive oil and seasoning with salt and pepper.
  4. Brush the salmon fillets with the flavoured butter and continue to cook for 1 minute on each side.
  5. Leave to rest for 2-3 minutes, then brush the remainder of the butter over the fish and serve.
