2 6-8 ounce salmon filets, skin removed
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2-3 basil leaves, minced
1 garlic glove, minced
6 ounces broccolini

- For the compound butter, place the butter into a small microwave safe bowl and microwave for 10-15 seconds. Mash in minced basil and half of the garlic until well combined. Place onto a small sheet of tinfoil and roll up, doing your best to reshape into a log. Place in the fridge until ready to serve.

- Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Season both sides of the salmon filets with salt and pepper to taste and set aside. Place the broccolini in a medium bowl and toss with olive oil (affiliate) and remaining garlic. Set aside.

- Lightly brush the grilling surface with olive oil (affiliate) and grill salmon for 5-6 minutes per side for medium. At the same time, add the broccolini. Occasionally turning until slightly charred and golden, about 10-12 minutes.

- Serve each salmon filet topped with a slice of basil butter and a side of grilled broccolini.
