Grilled Dill Butter Alaskan Salmon

Grilled Dill Butter Alaskan Salmon is a meal that I could truly eat everyday. I was born and raised in Alaska and I guess you could consider me somewhat of a “Salmon Snob”. These fresh and delicious flavors are my jam, they bring me right back to childhood.

My attitude with salmon stands at I will not under any circumstances eat salmon under the label “Atlantic” or “Farmed”. I’m pretty sassy when it comes to my fish. No matter how they label it, if it’s not a product of Alaska it’s not worth it to eat.

My father taught me how to filet and cook my own fish and he is The King of filleting and grilling his own caught fish. Whether it was catching kings off the beaches of the Little Susitna River or watching the salmon drop by the hundreds into our fish wheel in Chitina, I will always cherish my summers spent fishing with my family.

I want to share this simple and tasty recipe with everyone because this is something that is so near and dear to my heart. To me this is a comforting and homey meal.

Wine Pairing Recommendation: I love serving salmon with a glass of rosé, it’s so perfect together, no matter what the sauce is.
