Grilled Herbed Salmon

Fishing for salmon is how we make our livelihood, so we eat it four or more times a week. This recipe is quick, has tasty seasonings and lets the goodness of grilled salmon come through. —Jenny Roth, Homer, Alaska

    I have made this many many times. Always a crowd pleaser! I keep an extra batch of the baste in the freezer for a quick gourmet meal.

    This is a favorite in my home. I just don't use quite as much butter.

    We loved this recipe. The husband and I made it for my mom's birthday bbq and all of the guests LOVED it. I used 3.75 pounds of salmon and still had plenty of basting sauce left over, so don't double the sauce like I was considering!
