This was really good. I used a bit of dried tarragon since I didn't have fresh.

Really nice! I used 1 t of dried tarragon, never had it on salmon before but it wont be the last time. I couldn't find snap peas so blanched some green beans in water then finished them in the shallot butter. Yum!
- 4 (6 ounce) skinless salmon fillets (6 ounces each, 1-inch thick)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt, plus
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt, divided
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper, divided

Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 450°F Season salmon with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
- Melt 2 tablespoons butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add salmon and increase heat to medium high. Cook 1 to 1 1/2 minutes on one side until salmon just begins to brown lightly. Place salmon, browned side down, in small rimmed baking dish.
- Melt remaining butter in same skillet over medium low heat. Add shallots and cook until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Spoon 1 tablespoon shallot mixture over salmon and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons dill or tarragon. Bake 4 to 7 minutes or until salmon just begins to flake.
