Grilled Sockeye Salmon with Peppadew Butter, Asparagus and Charred Tomatoes

You’ve had grilled salmon, right? Because grilled salmon is the best salmon. Some may find cooking fish intimidating, but yes, you can have perfect salmon in just a few simple steps. Especially if you’re using Peppadew butter. I used this butter recipe on fried calamari in all of my restaurants, and it was one of those dishes that made everyone in the dining room sit up straight and wave frantically at the waiter to say, “I’ll have what they’re having.” And on a couple of premium sockeye salmon fillets, this butter sings. Don’t forget to leave some aside for the veggies.
