What do you need
1 Seafood grilling tray - Oven (oven safe pan like cast iron)
Got ya.. This tray is very useful for this dish
You can buy this from the home depot
1 basting brush
1 2 lb salmon filet
1/4 tablespoon of ground black pepper
1/4 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon of dry basil
½ stick butter
1 tablespoons of olive oil
2 fresh garlic cloves
1 laundry pin for your nose
And We Begin………
1 Place the fish on a seafood grill tray *skin down* (I always put paper towels under the tray to stop and nasty from getting on my cutting board also treat the try with oil prior to placing fish)
* Can you smell that? cause I can :-(
2 Season lightly with salt and pepper (Make sure to cover the entire filet)
Pic in place of salt, Cause lemons look better
3 Slice the lemon and place on top of the fish *you need to baste the filet with the butter mix before placing the lemon slices. see below..
Look at it Karen Just look...
4 Hold Fast - Is your grill on?
1 Mince two cloves and place in a small microwave safe bowl
2 Add 1 tablespoon of dry ground basil in bowl
3 Add ½ stick of salted butter to the bowl
4 Microwave until melted and stir
Make it look like that or else it wont work
The tray is seasoned with lost boys
1 Lightly brush the warm butter onto the flesh of the fish. (I do this right before I place this on the grill) Make sure to cover everything including the lemon.
Some people like this I guess
2 Place the center burner on your grill to low, Front and back should be on Medium
3 Set the seafood tray in the center of the grill
Put it where I say
4 Close the grill allow to cook for 5 min
5 Baste the fish every 5 Min ( make sure you close the lid in between each basting)
Sausage is for me
6 I cook this for around 20 min however feel free to add or subtract time depending on your grill or your preference) - *I like to see browning on the sides of the filet before serving.
7 Remove from heat and baste one last time. Allow the fish to rest for 5 min prior to serving.
It broke when I took it off cause I was holding my nose
Booo yahhh…. Now go enjoy your friends and family just keep it away from me!!
