Makes 1/3 cup

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 teaspoon capers, drained and mashed

1 teaspoon packed grated lemon zest

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon House Herbs (see Note) or other dried Italian herb blend

1 tablespoon diced yellow onion

½ teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Whisk together melted butter, capers, lemon zest, garlic powder, dried herbs, onion, salt and pepper. Set aside for salmon.

Note: To make 3 ¼ tablespoons dried House Herbs, pulse 1 ½ teaspoons rosemary in a food processor until finely chopped. In a small bowl mix together rosemary, 1 tablespoon oregano, 1 tablespoon basil, a pinch of allspice, ¾ teaspoon marjoram, 1 teaspoon thyme, ¼ teaspoon white pepper and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Store in an airtight container in a dry place. (Heat, bright light and air destroy the flavor of herbs, and moisture can cause mold.) For best flavor, use within 6 months.
