BAKED SALMON FOR THE BARBECUE
Fish on the bbq is a delicious option to the burger. Baked Salmon is a lovely alternative on a Summer’s day. Loseley have created an easy recipe using their Loseley Summer Meadow Butter.
This delicious Loseley Butter is spreadable straight from the fridge and yet has all the creamy taste of traditional butter making it incredibly versatile.
So as it spreads straight from the fridge it is great for making garlic butter for delicious garlic bread or herb butters to smear inside fish parcels. If not using Salmon simply mix the butter with plenty of fresh, chopped herbs (fennel, dill, mint and oregano – make some shallow slashes on the sides of whole fish such as bream, trout or bass- and then fill the fish cavity and slashes with the butter. Pop the fish into an ‘envelope’ of tightly sealed silver foil and put on a really hot barbecue. Cook each side for a few minutes and viola, one perfectly prepared, delicious fish — and no smelly pans to clean up afterwards!
Ingredients for Baked Salmon

Method for Baked Salmon
Cut leek and carrot into thin strips.
Put half of the Loseley butter into a bowl and stir until soft. Grate half a teaspoon of lemon rind and add to a teaspoon of squeezed lemon juice and mix with salt, pepper and butter. Rinse fillets under cold water and cover each with a square of kitchen foil. Put a teaspoon of lemon juice and carrot and leek strips over each fillet. Put some of the lemon butter on top. Wrap each fillet in its foil parcel. Put the parcels on the BBQ for 15-20mins. Set each fillet on a warm plate and spoon the vegetables and juices over them. Serve with Northern Irish baby potatoes or a fresh salad.
