Mustard-Crusted Salmon with Dill Butter

Such a lovely marriage of flavors.


2 1/2 pound salmon fillet

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1/2 cup brown mustard

4 garlic cloves, minced

3 tablespoons orange marmalade

4 tablespoons butter, melted

1/3 - 1/2 cup fresh dill, chopped


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.  Lightly oil a large baking sheet with sides.  Place salmon in pan and salt.  Roast ten minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine mustard, garlic and marmelade.  

Remove salmon from oven and spread mustard mixture all over the top.  Return to oven for 10 - 15 minutes more.

Mix together butter and fresh dill.  When salmon is done, top with dill butter.  Allow to rest a few minutes before transferring it to a serving platter.  Serves 6.
