Video Transcription:

Hi I am Thierry Rautureau, The Chef in the Hat, owner of Luc in Madison Valley and Loulay in downtown Seattle. I am going to show you how to do a quick fresh herb chop. Olive oil, salt and pepper. What is it called? It's called a fresh herb mixture, it's what I call it. It goes super well when you are barbecuing or grilling a piece of fish, a steak, a pork chop, anything. You make that marinade, everything is going to meld down. It is going to be fantastic. All you have to do is use a very sharp knife, like we always talk about. I've got sage, oregano and chives. I am using the whole thing together. I'm finely slicing it. I want some nice fresh flavor out of all this. All right, in a bowl, olive oil, pepper ground, a little bit of sea salt. Sometimes I add lemon juice, just a little bit of lemon juice and that does the trick. Be gentle and mix the whole thing together. And it gives beautiful flavor to your salmon, very fresh, very bright.
