Simple and tasty !!!

  • 4 salmon steaks
  • Vegetable oil for brushing
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Lemon Herb Butter
  • A large salad any style

Herb Butter:

  • 1 pound butter
  • 1 1/2 lemons (zest and juice)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped herbs (your choice but I like basil, thyme and sometimes a bit of cilantro)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh chopped parsley

Combine ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth
Shape into a long roll (a log) in plastic wrap
Twist ends and chill got it ?

Prepare a medium fire in a charcoal grill or preheat a gas grill to medium heat
Place the salmon fillet, skin-side down (if using skin-on,)and make sure salmon is well oiled with vegetable oil
Salt and pepper, if desired
Cover the grill and cook on one side for 6-8 minutes
While the salmon is cooking, prepare yourself a ice cold beer !
When the fish is ready on the first side flip over and grill second side
Continue grilling, covered, until the fish is opaque throughout and the salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork or sharp knife (about 4 minutes)
Using a spatula lift your salmon fillet from the grill ( like you just caught it from the sea) and slide onto a serving platter (skin-side down if using a skin-on fillet)
Top fillet or steaks with a generous amount of lemon herb butter (butter should melt over the fish)
Portion and plate to serve (you can add more lemon herb butter to each, if desired) Ha !! Enjoy !!
