Grilled Salmon

Grilled Salmon with Tarragon Butter

This Salmon recipe is one of our favorite for grilling fish or seafood. For an added twist on flavor, try grilling the salmon on a cedar plank soaked in water for a few hours. The tarragon butter enhances the flavor of the salmon and keeps it moist. The butter sauce works equally well with fresh trout.

An interesting twist on this recipe is to substitute fresh basil for the tarragon in the sauce and serve it over your favorite pasta. This is sure to be a change to the same old pasta dish!
