  • cooking spray

  • 1 clove garlic, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • ½ cup butter

  • ¼ cup white wine

  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 ½ teaspoons dried fines herbes

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt

  • 4 (6 ounce) salmon fillets

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh dill


  1. Preheat the oven broiler; set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Line a jelly roll pan with aluminum foil; spray with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. Place garlic and olive oil in a small microwave-safe bowl. Cook on high in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat; stir in garlic mixture. Remove from heat; stir in white wine, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, fines herbes, black pepper, and garlic salt.

  3. Place salmon fillets skin-side down on the prepared pan. Spoon about 1/3 of the butter sauce over fillets; sprinkle evenly with fresh dill.

  4. Broil in the preheated oven for 3 minutes. Turn fillets so that a side faces up and baste fillets with about 1/3 of the butter sauce; broil for 3 minutes. Turn fillets so the opposite side faces up and baste with remaining butter sauce; broil until fillets flake easily with a fork, about 3 more minutes.
