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

Directions

  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.
