Fast & Easy Gourmet Recipe For Grilled Salmon With Lime Butter Sauce

Ingredients

  1. Salmon:
  2. 6 (6-oz) pieces center-cut salmon fillet (about 1 inch thick) with skin
  3. 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated fresh lime zest
  1. Lime Butter:
  2. 1 large garlic clove, chopped
  3. 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  4. 1 teaspoon salt
  5. 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  6. 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted

Directions

  1. Make lime butter: Purée garlic with lime juice, salt, and pepper in a blender until smooth. With motor running, add melted butter and blend until emulsified, about 30 seconds.
  2. Make salmon: Prepare grill for cooking over medium-hot charcoal (moderate heat for gas).
  3. Season salmon all over with salt and pepper, then grill, flesh sides down, on lightly oiled grill rack (covered only if using gas grill) 4 minutes. Turn fillets over and grill (covered only if using gas grill) until just cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes more. Sprinkle fillets with zest and top each with 1 tablespoon lime butter sauce.

Serves 6.
