  5. Cut the lemon in half.
  6. Squeeze 2 tsp. of lemon juice into the butter. Reserve the remaining lemon for serving.
  7. Add the barbecue sauce to the with the butter and lemon juice. Whisk until the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  8. Spoon about a Tablespoon of the barbecue glaze down the center of each salmon filet. Use the back of the spoon to gently spread the glaze so the filets are evenly coated.
  9. Transfer the baking sheet to the top rack of the oven.
  10. Broil the filets for 6-7 minutes, until the glaze is caramelized and the salmon flakes easily with a fork. Keep a close eye on the oven during the broiling process to ensure the salmon does not burn.
