Grilled Salmon with Basil Butter Rub

4 salmon fillets, 6 oz each
3/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
5 tsp butter, softened
5 tbs basil, chopped

Preheat grill. Season salmon with salt, pepper, and garlic. Mix butter with basil and rub over salmon skin.

Make a shallow foil bowl, dull side up, by folding heavy-duty foil in two then up on all four sides to be sure salmon will cook in its juices.

Place salmon in foil, skin side down. Cook on medium-hot covered grill for about 10 minutes per inch of thickness. Turning is not necessary. Salmon is done when it turns a light pink color throughout.
