Salmon with Pistachio Basil Butter

Salmon with Pistachio Basil Butter created by Heydarl

I don't remember where I got this recipe but it is totally sinful! We eat ALOT of salmon and I am always looking for new ways to prepare it. This is really different and has a very rich taste. It would be an appropriate dish for a special night or dinner party but is easy enough for a work night.

    My husband loves to grill. I love this recipe and would like to make it. Is there any thoughts on how to incorporate the recipe so he can grill and I can enjoy the buttery sauce. Thank you

    Added a small amount more lime juice (helped with the food processing) and used pine nuts instead of pistachios (that's all I had in the house). I got rave reviews from the family. My daughter couldn't stop shoving salmon in her face! She wanted more and more and nothing else for dinner! Thanks for a great recipe!

    Great! I halved the butter amount as some other reviewers have, as well.
