Grilled Basil Salmon Steaks

READY IN: 46mins
Recipe by Normaone

I've had this recipe in my file for so long I don't know where it came from. I do know that it is wonderful especially with really fresh salmon. My oldest son brings one home from time to time. There just isn't anything better!

Delicious marinade! We grilled ours on a cedar plank in the BGE, instead of over wood chips, super yum~ Will definitely be using this one again!
