 1 teaspoon minced garlic
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
 2 tablespoons olive oil
 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
 6 salmon fillets (6 oz. each)
 2 tablespoons butter
 1 tablespoon flour
 1/2 teaspoon paprika
 3/4 cup milk
 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
 1/4 cup dry white wine, such as Pinot Grigio
 1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil leaves
 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
Step 1

Prepare a grill for high heat (450° to 550°; you can hold your hand 5 in. above cooking grate only 2 to 4 seconds). In a small bowl, combine garlic, salt, 1/2 tsp. pepper, the oil, and lemon juice. Brush mixture over salmon, then cook, turning once, until done the way you like, about 6 minutes total for medium.

Step 2

In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour and cook until starting to brown. Whisk in remaining 1/2 tsp. pepper, the paprika, milk, mustard, wine, and 3 tbsp. water. Cook until simmering, then spoon over salmon and sprinkle with herbs.
