    GRILLED SALMON WITH BASIL CREAM
    from "The Barbecue! Bible" by Steven Raichlen

    Salmon has a natural affinity for basil, especially when paired with the following basil cream sauce. It is an invention of my friend Pino Savarino, a fine chef from Italy who works in Miami.

    PREPARATION

    1. Preheat the grill to high.
    2. Rinse the salmon fillets under cold running water, then drain and blot dry with paper towels. Place the fillets on a platter and brush on both sides with the oil. Season both sides with lemon juice and salt and pepper, then set aside while you prepare the sauce.
    3. Combine the basil, wine, and garlic in a blender and process to a smooth purée. Transfer the purée to a small, heavy saucepan and stir in the cream. Bring to simmer over medium heat and cook until reduced by half, about 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Whisk in the lemon juice and butter. When the butter is incorporated, remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper. Keep warm, covered.
    4. When ready to cook, preheat a fish or vegetable grate (if using) for 5 minutes, then oil it or the grill grate. Arrange the salmon fillets on the hot grate and grill 3 to 6 minutes. Using a long spatula, carefully turn the fillets over and grill until the fish breaks into firm flakes when pressed with a finger, 3 to 6 minutes more.
    5. Using the spatula, carefully transfer the fillets to serving plates or a platter. Spoon the basil sauce on top and serve.
