4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each), skin-on or skinless
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and black pepper, to taste
Lemon wedges for garnish
1. Prepare the Herb and Lemon Marinade:
In a bowl, combine the chopped parsley, dill, chives, minced garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, and olive oil. Mix well to create a flavorful herb and lemon marinade.
2. Marinate the Salmon:
Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag.
Pour the herb and lemon marinade over the salmon fillets, ensuring they are well coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
3. Preheat the Grill:
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (about 375-400°F or 190-200°C). Brush the grill grates with a bit of oil to prevent sticking.
4. Grill the Salmon:
Remove the salmon fillets from the marinade and let any excess marinade drip off.
Place the salmon fillets on the preheated grill. If using skin-on fillets, place them skin-side down first.
Grill the salmon for about 4-5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillets. The salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork and has a slightly charred exterior.
Carefully transfer the grilled salmon fillets to a serving platter.
Season with salt and black pepper to taste and garnish with lemon wedges.
Serve your Grilled Herb and Lemon Salmon as an elegant and gluten-free entree option alongside your favorite side dishes.
This Grilled Herb and Lemon Salmon is a delightful and flavorful dish that's perfect for a special occasion or a weeknight dinner. The combination of fresh herbs, zesty lemon, and perfectly grilled salmon creates a memorable dining experience.
