Arugula-Raspberry Salmon

Recipe from

Coastal Living


1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
8 raspberries, crushed
2 tablespoons finely minced baby arugula
1 teaspoon salt, divided
3/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
3 tablespoons olive oil
8 raspberries, crushed
2 teaspoons raspberry vinegar
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets, skin and pin bones removed
Garnishes: baby arugula leaves, fresh raspberries


Blend butter, 8 crushed raspberries, minced arugula, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl with a fork. Spoon mixture onto a sheet of wax paper, and form into a 4-inch-long log. Twist ends of wax paper to seal. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.

Stir together olive oil, 8 crushed raspberries, raspberry vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a shallow dish; add salmon. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour or up to 4 hours.

Remove salmon from marinade, discarding marinade. Grill salmon over medium-high heat 3 to 4 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Place 2 pats of arugula-raspberry log on each fillet, and allow to melt over fish. Garnish, if desired.
