The orange and basil-flavored butter is a nice complement to this grilled salmon entrée.
6 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter melted
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil leaves
1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest
3 (12-ounce) fresh salmon fillets, each cut crosswise into 2 pieces
1 tablespoon garlic pepper
Sliced almonds, toasted, if desired
Basil leaves, if desired
*Substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil.
Heat gas grill on medium-high or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.
Combine butter, orange juice, chopped basil leaves and orange zest in bowl; reserve 3 tablespoons butter mixture. Brush remaining butter mixture onto fish; sprinkle with garlic pepper.
Place fish onto grill. Grill, turning once, 10-12 minutes or until internal temperature of fish reaches at least 145°F and edges flake easily with fork.
Drizzle fish with reserved butter mixture. Sprinkle with almonds and basil leaves, if desired.
- Grilling individual salmon fillet pieces makes turning the fish much easier during grilling. Be sure to have a good, long-handled metal spatula to lift and turn each piece.
- To toast sliced almonds, heat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds onto ungreased shallow baking pan. Bake 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until golden brown.

Great recipe! I was very pleased to find that it was tasty with dried basil instead of fresh.
This recipe was delicious. We always use a mustard sauce on our salmon, but tried this recipe and my 15 year old son said he likes this recipe even better!! Will use this recipe again.
