Salmon with Ginger-Soy Butter

Salmon with Ginger-Soy Butter Salmon with Ginger-Soy Butter 

 This is a really nice and very easy recipe for salmon that was adapted from one I found at Prevention. I have not done a lot with butter sauces - but I am hoping to do more in the future. I really loved the way this turned out. 

Ingredients (serves 3-4)
1 1/2 tbsp Unsalted butter, softened (try to get two hours at room temperature)
1 tsp Grated ginger
1 tbsp Lemon juice
1 tbsp Soy sauce
1 tbsp Olive oil
3-4 salmon fillets (4-6 oz each)
1/4 tsp Kosher salt
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1 tbsp Olive oil

1. Mix the butter, ginger, lemon juice, and soy sauce until well blended. Set aside.
2. Preheat olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. 
3. Season the salmon with salt and pepper and rub with the oil. 
4. Add salmon to the pan (skin side down) and cook for 4 to 5 minutes.  Turn the salmon and cook for 3-4 minutes on the other side.  
5. When the salmon is removed from the pan, place a spoonful of the flavored butter (along with any additional liquids that did not blend).
