Grilled Alaska King Salmon with Lemon Butter

Ingredients:

1ounce salad oil or canola oil
7ounce fillet of king salmon boned
1ounce lemon compound butter
5spears of asparagus
5ounces of roasted potatoes

Cooking Instructions:

On a low to medium heat on the barbecue grease the grill with an oiled rag of salad or canola oil. Also rub the salmon with a little bit of salad oil as well. Place the fillet of salmon on the grill at a 45 degree angle and allow to cook for 2 minutes. Then lift and place at the opposite 45 degree angle to make nice diamond shapes for presentation. Allow to cook for 2 more minutes then flip. Place the asparagus on the grill for about 2 minutes while constantly rolling them to insure they get cooked on all sides, remove and set aside. Allow the salmon to cook for another 4 minutes on this side. This will make it about medium rare to medium. If you want it cooked more just increase the cooking times on each side for about a minute or two. Remove the salmon and place it on the plate with your choice of starch(there is a roasted red potato recipe with the sockeye recipe), asparagus and top the salmon with the lemon butter and serve. Serves 1
