Lemon Garlic Herb Grilled Salmon
This salmon is marinated in a bright, fresh lemon garlic herb marinade then grilled to perfection. It's such a delicious and refreshing salmon recipe and it's perfect for summer!
(6 - 7 oz)
skinless salmon fillets
fresh lemon juice
plus more for brushing grill
finely minced fresh parsley,
plus more for garnish
finely minced fresh rosemary
finely minced fresh thyme
fresh lemon zest
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Place salmon in an 11 by 7-inch dish.
In a small mixing bowl whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, rosemary, thyme, garlic, lemon zest, dijon mustard, honey, 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper until well combined.
Pour mixture over salmon (lift fillets to help marinade run under) then cover and let marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes, turning once halfway through.
Preheat grill to medium-high heat during last 10 minutes of salmon marinating.
Brush grill grates with oil, spoon some of the herbs onto salmon (or just use your hands to spread them over), remove salmon from marinade and place on grill.
Grill about 3 - 5 minutes per side to cook through.
Serve warm garnished with more parsley if desired.
*Thinner fillets won't work well for grilling. Look for a side of salmon or fillets that are at least 1 to 1 1/2-inches thick.
Always preheat the grill. I like to use a medium-high heat. Preheating usually takes about 5 - 10 minutes, or more on cold days.
