  3. In small bowl, combine oil and 1 tablespoon lemon juice; mix well. Brush over salmon fillets. Sprinkle with salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  4. When grill is heated, place salmon, skin side up, on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals.

If necessary, reheat butter sauce over very low heat, stirring constantly. Serve salmon with butter sauce.

Recipe Fact
This sauce recipe is adapted from the classic French sauce, beurre blanc, literally "white butter," It is best when prepared at the last minute. However, one can start the recipe before grilling the fish and then whisk in the butter as soon as the fish is done. If you're rushed, don't bother to strain out the shallots.
Broiling Tip
To broil salmon, place on broiler pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using grilling times as a guide, turning once and brushing with any remaining oil mixture as directed.
