Sun Dried Tomato Basil Butter over Grilled Salmon

In the northwest, we love our fresh caught, wild, Pacific salmon. To tell you the truth, it is great with very little seasoning but today we wanted to dress it up.

Sun Dried Tomato Basil Butter over Grilled Salmon
1/2 cup of unsalted butter (1 stick) at room temp
1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes in oil
8 basil leaves, torn
sea salt and fresh pepper, to taste

In a small food processor, blend together butter, tomatoes and basil until combined. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place in fridge until ready to use.
Take salmon off of grill and top with a tablespoon of butter.
Note: I have since used this butter on pasta and also on a sourdough baguette. It would work well on other types of fish and freezes well for future use.
