Expert Tips

The dill can be finely "chopped" by snipping it with a kitchen scissors over plastic wrap or waxed paper.

Make the butter mixture up to two weeks ahead; store it in the refrigerator and remove just before serving.

To broil salmon, place, skin side down, on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once.
