I had intended to BBQ my salmon, but rain caused a change in plans & found this recipe to try instead. It included some of my favorite flavors & was a very nice salmon preparation. It was easy to put together & the results were very tasty. As did the other reviewer, I used mint & lime & reduced the amount of butter by half. It was still enough to give a rich flavor to the salmon.

we were not sure if we would like this, but i decided to go ahead since i needed to use up some mint before it wilted. we were pleasantly surprised that it went so well with the salmon. i chose limes and mint leaves (used 50% less fat butter) - the flavors were subtle but very tangible. a lovely, refreshing version of salmon.
