I don’t like doing much to salmon, but the unctuousness of the hazelnuts is soooo heavenly with the salmon. Feel free to use any salmon you want.
this much serves 4
2 oz. hazelnuts, toasted
1/2 c butter, softened
chopped shallots or herbs, optional
zest of one lemon, optional
4-8oz. salmon fillets
salt/seasoning salt/salt & pepper
Chop toasted nuts to a fine mist. Add to butter. Fluff with a fork, add optional ingredients. Grill fish with a smear of butter on it. Just before it’s done, add more butter and seasonings. I always use unsalted butter (for everything) because that way I control the saltiness rather than having the butter dictate the saltiness.
