Caper-Garlic Roasted Salmon

Looking for a simple, delicious, yet seems-gourmet meal?  This is the money shot!  Simple its preparation and divine in the flavors, you cannot miss with this recipe!

Caper-Garlic Roasted Salmon

2 lb. salmon fillet
1&1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons  olive oil (not extra virgin)
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 dashes cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried dill
3 tablespoon capers (add a little caper juice if you like the taste)

Combine all ingredients, except salmon, in a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.  Place salmon skin-side down in heavy-duty foil with sides turned up. Pour sauce over fish.  
Place on medium hot grill and cover with lid for =/- 20 minutes.
Skin should remain attached to the foil when salmon is lifted.  Alternate method: cook in the oven set to 375 degrees, +/- 10 minutes, or until fish is light and flakey.
