In a small saucepan, melt the butter on medium. Add the green onions. Cook 2 min., until golden, stirring often. Whisk in lemon juice, zest, and hot sauce until combined. Remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Reserve 2 tbsp.
Arrange the salmon fillets in a baking dish. Season with salt and pepper. Pour remaining butter mixture over salmon. Bake 20–25 min., until salmon is cooked through. Drizzle reserved 2 tbsp butter mixture over salmon before serving. Garnish with additional green onions, if desired.
