One of my favorite things I made on the grill last summer was salmon. So simple, yet so delicious. Try these with basil butter and some broccolini to make this recipe into a Keto friendly meal. Serves 2 Total Time: 22 minutes
(What’s broccolini? It’s like broccoli and asparagus had a baby.)
2 6-8 oz salmon fillets, skin removed
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2-3 basil leaves, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
6 oz broccolini
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
For the compound butter, place the butter into a small microwave safe bowl and microwave for 10-15 seconds. Mash in minced basil and half of the garlic until well combined. Place onto a small sheet of tinfoil and roll up, doing your best to reshape into a log.
Place in the fridge until ready to serve.
Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Season both sides of the salmon filets with salt and pepper to taste and set aside. Place the broccolini in a medium bowl and toss with olive oil and remaining garlic. Set aside.
Lightly brush the grilling surface with olive oil and grill salmon for 5-6 minutes per side for medium. At the same time, add the broccolini.
Occasionally turning until slightly charred and golden, about 10-12 minutes.
Serve each salmon filet topped with a slice of basil butter and a side of grilled broccolini. Yum Yum.
