Delicious Grilled Salmon Recipe

Grilled Salmon

Grilled salmon is a classic dish that combines the rich flavors of salmon with the smoky essence of grilling. Here’s how to prepare a mouthwatering grilled salmon:


  • 4 salmon fillets, skin-on, about 6 oz each
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • Lemon wedges, for serving
  • Fresh herbs (such as parsley or dill), for garnish


  1. Prepare the Marinade:
    • In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, grated ginger, and black pepper.
  2. Marinate the Salmon:
    • Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish or a zip-lock bag. Pour the marinade over the salmon, making sure each fillet is well coated. Cover or seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (or up to 2 hours) to let the flavors meld.
  3. Preheat the Grill:
    • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (about 400-450°F or 200-230°C). Make sure the grill grates are clean and lightly oiled to prevent sticking.
  4. Grill the Salmon:
    • Remove the salmon fillets from the marinade, shaking off any excess. Place the fillets skin-side down on the grill.
    • Grill for about 4-5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillets. Avoid moving the salmon around too much to get nice grill marks and to prevent sticking.
    • Cook until the salmon is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. The internal temperature should reach 145°F (63°C).
  5. Serve:
    • Carefully remove the grilled salmon from the grill and transfer to a serving platter. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the fillets and garnish with fresh herbs.
    • Serve immediately with your favorite side dishes, such as roasted vegetables, rice, or a fresh salad.

Enjoy your perfectly grilled salmon with its caramelized exterior and tender, flaky interior, showcasing the wonderful flavors of the marinade and the grill. It’s a delightful dish that’s perfect for any occasion!
