Step 1

1. Boil wine, vinegar, and shallot in a 1-qt. saucepan; simmer until liquid is reduced by half, 15–20 minutes. Reduce heat to low; slowly whisk in butter until sauce is smooth. Stir in olives, ramps, salt, and pepper; set beurre blanc aside.

2. Heat a charcoal grill or set a gas grill to medium-high. (Alternatively, heat a cast-iron grill pan over medium-high.) Season salmon with salt and pepper; grill, flipping once, until cooked through, 5–7 minutes. Transfer salmon to serving plates; spoon reserved beurre blanc over top.
