Lemon Pepper Salmon

This past weekend was gorgeous grilling weather, so I whipped this up and thought it was pretty good!  Of course its all made up so there are probably better recipes out there, but I'll share it anyways.  Doug thought it was restaurant worthy.....Of course I'll let you decide. (Yes I totally ripped this picture off of the internet, but mine looked very much like it :) And recipes just look better with a picture don't you think?)

Ingredients:
4 Salmon fillets (or any other fish)
Lemon Pepper
Dehydrated onions
Salt & Pepper
4 Tbl butter melted
1 Tsp lemon pepper (approximate)
1 Tsp lemon juice (approximate)
Dash of garlic powder
Sliced Lemon for garnish

Directions:
- Heat the grill on med-high heat.
- On one or two sheets of tin foil, place fish skin side down and rub lemon pepper on meat to give it a good coating.  Sprinkle each fillet with the onions, salt and pepper.
- Place the foil on the grill for easy clean up and let fish cook for 3-5 minutes.  Turn and cook 3-5 minutes more.
- Meanwhile, melt butter and mix the lemon pepper, lemon juice, and garlic into it.  I really just whipped this up and didn't do a lot of measuring, so flavor it to taste.  After fish has cooked on both sides, pour butter mixture over each fillet and let it cook just a bit longer.
- Serve with your choice of rice and veggies. Garnish with sliced lemon.

I served this with plain brown rice and fresh cooked green beans, but I'm sure it would be great with a good rice pilaf and any choice of veggies!
