Grilled Salmon with Mustard Dill Butter

Grilled salmon is an excellent, flavorful way to prepare salmon. Wild salmon grills much better than farm-raised salmon, perhaps because of the higher fat content. Despite the higher fat content, wild salmon grills solidly and stays together nicely. It’s important to keep the grill very hot, clean and well-oiled to make sure foods cook well.


2 salmon steaks or 1 large filet
¼ c mustard
½ c butter at room temperature
¼ c chopped fresh dill
¼ c chopped shallots


Season the salmon with salt and pepper and grill until cooked as desired.
Mix butter, dill, mustard, and shallots with a pinch of salt and pepper and chill.
