Brown Butter Lemon Glaze

  • 3 tsp unsalted butter
  • .5 lemon


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.  Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and drizzle lightly with olive oil or spray with a non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat melt the butter.  Swirl the pan until the butter is browned and the milk solids are brown.  Remove from the heat and put the butter in a separate container.  *Discard the milk solids.  Set the butter aside and allow it to cool
  • Place the salmon on the rimmed baking sheet skin-side down.  Tap the fish dry with a paper towel.  Drizzle lightly with olive oil and season with blackening blend.  Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer measure 120°F and fish is flaky.  I removed the foil from the pan with the fish on it immediately to stop any further cooking.
  • Squeeze 1/2 a lemon into the browned butter. 
  • Top with salmon with a drizzle of the browned butter lemon glaze


Some people use milk solids.  It's up to you. If you put lemon in the butter when it's hot it will pop and sizzle.
