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.
Wonderful! I made this for a dinner party and it was so delicious, moist and super easy! So few ingredients but such wonderful flavor. I used fillets not steaks, the one extra we cooked got split up since everyone wanted more! So yummy.
WOW! Easy, fast and delicious! My DH loved it. I served it with baked french fries and a green salad with raspberry vinaigrette. I did not use all the butter as some other chefs mentioned.Thank you so much for this recipe
