Makes 4-6 servings
Ingredients: 1 large piece boneless salmon fillet, skin-on, 2 medium lemons, kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, 12 whole fresh basil leaves, rinsed and blotted dry, Lemon Basil Mustard Sauce (see recipe below)
Instructions: Rinse salmon fillet under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels. Cut lemon rind completely, then slice thinly the fruit crosswise. Remove any seeds, using a fork. Cut another lemon into 6 wedges and set aside (keep them for serving).
