For an impressive grilling meal, it doesn’t get much better than a salmon fillet dotted with unctuous and bright butter.
1 (2-pounds) salmon fillet with skin (1 1/2 inches thick), lightly seasoned with salt and pepper
Medlee Lemon Herb Butter
Cedar grilling plank
- Soak cedar grilling plank in water to cover 2 hours, keeping it immersed.
- Preheat grill to medium-high.
- Put salmon on plank, skin side down (if salmon is too wide for plank, fold in thinner side to fit). Grill, covered with a lid, until salmon is just cooked through and edges are browned, 13 to 15 minutes.
- Remove plank and salmon from the grill. Add Medlee Lemon Herb Butter medallions on top of salmon, allowing the butter to melt and salmon to rest before serving.
Note: Salmon can be grilled without plank on lightly oiled grilled grates, over indirect heat for 8 to 15 minutes.
