3/4 lb
salmon fillet
2 Tbsp
butter, melted
1/4 c
dry white wine
2 Tbsp
lemon juice
2 Tbsp
soy sauce
parsley, minced
lemon wedges


1Ignite coals about 35 minutes before you intend to begin cooking (you will need about 20 to 30 long burning briquets). When coals are covered with gray ash, arrange in a single layer to underlie area being used on grill. Knock ash off coals. Adjust grill to 4 to 6 inches above low-glowing coals.
2Cut heavy-duty foil the same size as fish fillet. Place fillet, skin side down, on foil.
3Combine butter, wine, lemon juice, and soy sauce.
4Place fish on grill, foil side down, and brush generously with butter sauce.
5Cover barbecue with its hood (or fashion a hood out of heavy-duty foil and place on grill to enclose fish).
6Cook, basting with butter sauce about every 5 minutes, until fish flakes readily when prodded in thickest portion with a fork (allow about 10 minutes cooking time for each inch of thickness).
7To serve, slide fish, still on foil, onto a serving plate or board.
8Garnish with parsley and lemon.
9Slice fish to the skin and lift each serving away from skin.
10Reheat any remaining butter sauce and pass at table to serve over fish.
