      Absolutely beautiful recipe for salmon steaks. I made half a batch -- cutting back on the butter and using the juice of a lemon and basil in place of parsley, because that was what I had on hand. Capers, which I love so much, are a perfect addition. Served with roasted tomatoes, and steamed kipfler potatoes and broccoli. Thanks so much for posting.

      I am not going to rate this as I did make some significant changes! I cut the recipe in half as it was just DH and myself. I only used 3 T butter...left out the parsley (because DH hates it) and used 2 T capers. As I had 2 small salmon fillets, these turned out a little over cooked...probably around the 12 to 15 minute mark would have been better. Just using 3 T butter...I found this very rich, so I couldn't imagine using more butter. This is a recipe I wouldn't mind playing around with...maybe adding some wine and a bit of garlic!!
