Grilled Salmon with Pistachio-Basil Butter
In a food processor bowl or blender container, combine basil, pistachio nuts, lime juice, garlic, butter, and the dash salt and pepper. Cover and process or blend until basil and pistachio are finely chopped, stopping to stir as necessary. Transfer to a container; cover. For a picnic, transport along with salmon in an insulated cooler with ice packs. Cook salmon within 1 hour.Advertisement
Brush both sides of the fish with the oil. Season fillets with additional salt and pepper. Grill, uncovered, directly over medium coals for 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness or until fish flakes easily with a fork, turning once. Serve with the Pistachio-Basil Butter. Makes 6 servings.
