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.
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 salmon 10 minutes.
Preheat 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. Cook 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 butter melts, stir in 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.
