Grilled Salmon with Hazelnut Butter |

Grilled Salmon with Hazelnut Butter

  • Author: Deborah


  • 1 pound salmon
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/8 t pepper
  • 2 T finely chopped hazelnuts
  • 3 T butter, softened
  • 1 T chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 t lemon juice


  1. Prepare hazelnut butter – toast hazelnuts in the microwave or oven. Mix hazelnuts with butter, parsley, and lemon juice.
  2. Sprinkle both sides of fish with salt and pepper. Grill fish for 4 minutes. Turn – spread about 1 T hazelnut butter over each fillet. Cover and grill 4 to 6 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with fork.

Recipe Notes:

I didn’t grill my fish – I just broiled it in the oven. It takes about the same amount of time, but you don’t have to heat up the grill. I think that grilling this would be wonderful, too, though. I also didn’t measure the ingredients for the hazelnut butter, just kind of threw it all together. I know I added more that 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, but I love lemon on my fish so it was wonderful. I just buy the frozen salmon fillets at Costco – unfortunately, I can’t get any really good fresh fish around here. (This is one of the many reasons I want to move to Seattle!!) I served my fish with some fresh asparagus that I just quickly blanched in boiling water, and put some of the extra hazelnut butter on the asparagus. It was a very simple, fast meal. The hazelnut butter was perfect – you were still able to get the wonderful taste of the salmon, but the nuts added a nice crunch. This one is definitely recommended!
