5 Ingredient Marinated Grilled Salmon
This grilled salmon is one of the best salmon recipes I've tried and it only takes FIVE ingredients. Bonus: there's minimal prep and minimal clean up.
side of salmon
, skin on
(1 large clove)
, plus more for brushing grill
(optional, for looks)
Lay salmon skin side down on a cutting board and cut salmon crosswise into 6 equal portions, transfer to a 13 by 9-inch baking dish skin side down.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together soy sauce, mustard, garlic and olive oil until mixture is emulsified (fully comes together).
Set aside about 2 Tbsp of the marinade mixture then spoon and spread remaining mixture over salmon, let rest at room temperature 10 minutes.
Meanwhile preheat grill over medium-high heat to about 400 degrees F. Clean grill grates and brush with oil.
Place salmon on grill skin side down and cook about 4 minutes, then carefully flip (I sort of roll it) and continue to cook another 4 minutes or to desired doneness.
Remove skin from salmon then plate and brush remaining 2 Tbsp marinade mixture over salmon.
Serve warm garnished with parsley if desired.
If you don't have a grill, you can likely bake the salmon at 400ºF for 10 to 15 minutes instead.
There's no need to remove the salmon skin beforehand. It's safe to eat and tastes delicious!
Grilled salmon pairs nicely with
grilled corn on the cob
black bean and corn salad
simple side salad
, and so much more.
