    Southern Polar Bear's Note:

    Compound butter is an incredibly easy, yet, impressive way to season meat, fish, and poultry. Louisiana Compound Butter is my favorite; it is really good on grilled steak, but it is extraordinary on grilled salmon!

      Made for Spring PAC 2010, this easy-fix recipe may well be my fave from among the recipes I chose. When I read *extraordinary on salmon* in your intro, I was hooked & it went far beyond my expectations. Fresh cilantro & Durkee sauce are not available here in Iceland, so I used dry cilantro & Tortuga SWEET HEAT Caribbean Pepper Sauce, altho I admit the latter in a lesser amt than the recipe prescribed for the sake of my DH. I oven-baked the salmon vs grilling & it was extraordinary! TY for sharing this great recipe w/us. :-)
