BBQ Salmon with White Butter Sauce

Marinating the salmon in salt and sugar for 2 hours allows the seasonings to permeate the meat and gives the salmon a tender but firm texture that is killer!

4 salmon steaks

½ cup brown sugar

½ cup salt

Water to cover steaks

Olive oil

Marinate the salmon in the brown sugar, salt and water for 2 hours. Remove from marinade and pat the salmon dry. Brush the steaks with olive oil and place them on a sheet of aluminum foil on the grill of the barbecue. Put the lid on the barbecue and cook about 10 minutes and use a spatula and turn the salmon over and cook about 5 more minutes. Take the salmon off the foil and place directly on the grill and cook until just done, about 5 to 10 minutes more.

White Butter Sauce

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

2 tablespoons white wine

1 tablespoon finely minced green onions

1 clove minced garlic

¼ teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

½ cup butter, cut in pieces

 In a saucepan combine lemon juice, vinegar, wine, onions, garlic, salt and pepper and bring to simmering. Simmer liquid until it reduces in half and whisk in pieces of butter until it is all blended in. When all of the butter has been added remove from heat. Sauce should be thick and creamy. Taste and add salt if needed. Serve immediately over the fresh cooked salmon.
