    PanNan's Note:

    This recipe is adapted from Fine Cooking magazine. It has a golden crust from the sear, a juicy center, and is topped with a dab of rich flavorful butter. This is very nice served on top of a bed of rice accompanied by sugar snap peas or asparagus. Salmon dishes are common in the US Northwest.

      This was great and simple. I loved the ginger, it added brightness to the richness of the salmon. Thanks for posting Nan!!! Made for Culinary Quest FP 2014.

      I used scallions instead of chives, and preshredded ginger root. These substitutions led to a somewhat less vibrant butter sauce. My wife suggested beefing it up with 3/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce. This was an excellent rescue! I think the original recipe with chives and fresh ginger is probably very good without the additional ingredient.

      A simple easy dish, with an interesting combination of seasonings. Unfortuntely, they didn't quite come together for me - there were too many mouthfuls with just one distinct flavor or another. I think maybe mixing the butter the day before so that the ginger, chives, and lemon juice could infuse it would work better. I didn't need quite this much butter for the fish, so used it in a simple rice accompaniment.
