  • 4 Salmon steaks, 3/4" thick
  • 4 oz Butter
  • 1 Lemon

heady handfuls of aromatic herbs. I would probably use something like 8
tablespoons parsley, 6 of chives, 4 of mint and no more than 2 teaspoons

steaks on a bed of herbs. Scatter more herbs over the fish, spoon on the
buttery cooking juices then the remaining herbs. Serve with wedges of lemon
and steamed new potatoes. (Other vegetables are best served as a separate
