grilled fish with citrus and orange-herb butter... 30 minutes

the goods:

2 to 4 (depending on how many you are serving) skinless salmon fillets
1 orange, sliced 1/4-inch thick
2 lemons, sliced 1/4-inch thick
fresh cilantro

orange-herb butter:
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
2 teaspoons fresh orange juice
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

Mash together orange-herb butter. Set up grill for indirect cooking (arrange heat source on one side of grill and place fish on the other side) and heat to medium-high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill.

Season fish with salt and pepper. Arrange sliced citrus on cooler side of grill and top with some fresh cilantro sprigs and fish; dab flavored butter on fish.

Cover and cook until fish is opaque in center (no need to turn), 20 to 30 minutes.
