Salmon with lemon caper butter is marinated and grilled to perfection. This is an easy dinner to prepare but will impress your guests at your next cookout.

Salmon cooks quickly because it has a naturally high oil content. Watch the sear marks carefully: if they are too dark on the first flip, turn down the burner so you don’t overcook the flesh.

Serve this easy grilled dish alongside grilled asparagus, red bell peppers, or butternut squash.
