This simple grilled salmon recipe calls for basting the salmon in a mixture of butter, white wine, lemon juice and soy sauce while it's on the grill.  To serve, sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley.

How to Make It

Step 1

Rinse fish and pat dry. Set fish, skin down, on a sheet of heavy foil and trim foil to make a rim about 2 inches wider than fish. Fold excess foil up to create a lip around fish.

Step 2

In a bowl, combine butter, wine, lemon juice, and soy sauce.

Step 3

Prepare barbecue for indirect heat.

Step 4

If using charcoal briquets, mound and ignite 60 briquets on the firegrate of a barbecue with a lid. When briquets are dotted with gray ash, in 15 to 20 minutes, push equal amounts to opposite sides of firegrate. Add 5 more briquets to each mound of coals. Set a drip pan on firegrate between coals.

Step 5

If using a gas barbecue, turn all burners to high and close lid for 10 minutes. Adjust burners for indirect cooking (no heat down center) and keep on high.

Step 6

Set fish, foil down, on grill but not over heat source. Brush fish generously with butter mixture, then again about every 5 minutes, until fish is opaque but still moist-looking in center of thickest part (cut to test), 20 to 30 minutes. Cover grill (open vents for charcoal).

Step 7

Slide a large, rimless baking sheet under foil, then slide fish from pan onto a platter. Sprinkle with parsley. Cut fish into portions and lift from skin. Season with juice from lemon wedges.
