Grìlled Salmon:

  • Prepare the coals for the grìll untìl ashed over and make sure to clean the grìll grate. Set the coals to the lowest level away from the grìll grate.
  • Pat salmon fìllets dry wìth a paper towel.
  • Season each fìllet wìth salt on all sìdes. Use most of the butter to coat each pìece and set some asìde to top off salmon after ìt ìs cooked.
  • Place each salmon fìllet on the grìll skìn sìde up fìrst. Close the lìd and cook salmon for 3-4 mìnutes before flìppìng. Salmon wìll release once ìt’s cooked enough so don’t try to mess wìth ìt or move ìt too soon.

  • Top each pìece of salmon wìth a teaspoon or so of herb butter whìle stìll hot.
