Step 1

Heat gas grill on medium-high or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.

Combine butter, orange juice, chopped basil leaves and orange zest in small bowl; reserve 3 tablespoons butter mixture. Brush remaining butter mixture onto fish; sprinkle with garlic pepper.

Place fish onto grill. Grill, turning once, 10-12 minutes or until internal temperature of fish reaches at least 145°F. and edges flake easily with fork.

To serve, drizzle fish with reserved butter mixture. Sprinkle with almonds and basil leaves, if desired.

*Substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil.
Recipe Tip

- Grilling individual pieces of salmon fillet makes turning the fish much easier during grilling. Be sure to have a good, long-handled metal spatula to lift and turn each piece.

- To toast sliced almonds, heat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds onto ungreased shallow bakingl pan. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until golden brown
