This grilled salmon with lemon caper sauce sounds like fancy adult food, but it's actually quite appropriate for kids as well. You can grill the salmon on a regular grill, in a grill pan on the stove, or in an indoor electric grill.
"A fool-proof method for preparing salmon on the grill. The lemony marinade soaks into the fish and adds a ton of bright flavor. The buttery lemon sauce takes just a minute or two on the stove. The flavor is bright yet rich, with briny capers adding complexity. Any side dish will work as an accompaniment." —Danielle Centoni
Gather the ingredients.
Whisk 1/4 cup lemon juice, olive oil, oregano, and a dash of salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add salmon fillets, turning to coat. Refrigerate the salmon for 10 minutes.
Preheat the grill for medium-high heat. Brush and oil the grill grates. Grill the salmon about 4 minutes a side, depending on the thickness of the salmon and the type of grill you're using.
Heat remaining 1/2 cup lemon juice in a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer 5 to 7 minutes until it becomes more opaque and reduces to 1/3 cup. Remove from heat and add butter and a pinch of salt. When the butter is melted, stir in the capers. Taste, and add more salt if necessary.
Divide salmon among four plates. Serve with a drizzle of lemon caper sauce over each salmon fillet.
