  • 20 oz salmon cut in 3-4 oz filets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic grated
  • 1 zest and juice of lemon
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • Pre-heat a grill (or grill pan) on high heat.
  • Season flesh side of the salmon with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
  • When grill is hot, spray with non-stick grilling spray.
  • Place salmon on the grill and cook about 5-6 minutes per side until you reach your desired level of doneness. (I like mine a little pink, especially when it's high quality sockeye.)
  • While fish is cooking, whisk together olive oil, garlic, lemon juice/zest, parsley, salt and pepper.
  • Drizzle sauce over the fish before serving.


Can you use halibut with this sauce as well?
