roasted salmon with butter... 20 minutes

the goods:

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
1 salmon fillet (2 to 3 pounds), skin on
chopped fresh parsley, for serving

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Place butter on a rimmed baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Place sheet in oven until butter melts, about 1 minute. Carefully remove sheet from oven and place salmon on top of butter, skin side down; season with salt and pepper. Return sheet to oven.

Roast until salmon is just cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes. It will flake easily when done. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
