  • 4 6 ounces salmon fillets
  • 4 tablespoons Danish Creamery Sea Salted Premium Butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley plus more for serving
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Lemon slices for serving
  • ½ pound asparagus optional


  • Preheat the oven to 425˚F. Place the butter in an 8 x 11-inch baking dish and set in the oven for 5 minutes, until the butter is melted.
  • Remove the dish from the oven, add the parsley, oregano, garlic and pepper, and toss to combine. Carefully place the salmon fillets in the dish, and use a brush to spread the butter herbed mixture on top of the salmon.
  • Roast for 8-10 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked to your desired doneness.
  • Spoon any remaining butter sauce over the salmon and serve with more fresh parsley and lemon slices.
