Grilled Copper River Salmon with Chive and Basil Butter

Fresh salmon from Alaska's Copper River arrived at the fish market. This tasty, rich salmon full of Omega 3 oils needs little addition other than a quick grill and some fresh lemon.
I took it one step further with a little herb butter.
Grilled Copper River with Chive and Basil Butter

1 fillet of Copper River Salmon
2 Tablespoons of unsalted butter
1 Tablespoon of basil, chopped
1 Tablespoon of chives, finely minced

Combine butter, basil and chives in a small bowl and set aside.
Feel along the salmon fillet for any bones and remove with pinch nose pliers or tweezers.
Preheat grill to 320F.
Place salmon fillet, skin side down and grill for about 10 minutes an inch.
Remove and top with herb butter.
