Salmon steaks make a quick and easy meal with rice or baked potatoes and a salad.


  • Salmon steaks
  • Butter or herb butter

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Broil salmon steaks or fillets about 4 inches from heat, allowing about 10 minutes per inch of thickness.

  3. Baste with butter or herb butter a few times and turn once halfway through cooking to brown both sides of fish.

Glass Bakeware Warning

Do not use glass bakeware when broiling or when a recipe calls to add liquid to a hot pan, as glass may explode. Even if it states oven-safe or heat resistant, tempered glass products can, and do, break occasionally.

Herb Butter: Combine 1 stick of softened butter with 1/4 cup of finely chopped herbs, such as basil, chives, tarragon, dill, parsley, and/or thyme. Add about 1/2 teaspoon of salt or about 3/4 teaspoon of coarse salt and 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper. Blend thoroughly.
