Sign me up for any and all brown butter dishes. Desserts, appetizers, dinners, veggies, meat, all of it. Love it! Add some honey and garlic, which is the best combo in my opinion, and this is the perfect mix of sweet and savory, nutty and crisp.

This is a dish that is super easy! Very little prep time and everything in one pan. Bring on dinner. This brown butter helps the salmon get that crispy outside. So good!

Brown butter is easy and you can use it for so many things, both sweet and savory. All it takes is a couple minutes. It will start to bubble and get foamy. You’ll see it start to turn to a golden color. Keep stirring and once the foam goes away then you have your brown butter. Just minutes.

Perfect for a weeknight meal, paired with veggies, noodles or over a salad. You gotta try this easy dinner recipe.
