Air Fryer Salmon with Lemon Butter Sauce

Our family, including our beloved Grandma Lorraine, who famously told us that “there’s not much in life that can’t be made better with butter,” has made developing the perfect batch of butter our family legacy. This goal is more than 125 years in the making, a passion passed on from generation to generation, including our children, who make up generation six. 

The end result is a line high butterfat butter in multiple, dreamy flavors, from sea salt butter to the garlic herb variety. 

You can grab the rolled version of our butter — or the classic sticks you’ll often find on store shelves — from your local market or specialty store, by using our location tool
