Grilled Salmon with Herbed Butter

I am a creature of habit when it comes to preparing salmon. I season it with either a light coating of olive oil, salt and minced fresh rosemary or an herbed butter. In the summer, I tend to default to herbed butter simply because I love basil and always have it growing in my garden.

The number of servings depends on size of salmon fillet. A 4-oz piece of salmon is the recommended serving for adults, which is approximately the size of an adult palm.

Note: I choose wild-caught or Norwegian farmed salmon, read more about the differences between wild-caught and farmed salmon
