  • In a blender or food processor combine the mint and parsley with the lemon juice, garlic, honey, olive oil, salt and pepper. Blend into a smooth paste. Spread the herb paste over the salmon fillets and allow to marinate for five minutes.

  • Remove salmon from marinade, and discard remaining marinade. Lightly oil the grill, then grill salmon for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes when tested with a fork.

  • Brush the fillets with melted butter and garnish with lemon slices and mint sprigs before serving.

I really enjoyed the mint flavor that came through here. I used a combination of pineapple mint and spearmint that I had growing in the garden. Read More

I personally love fresh mint and was excited when I was recommended this recipe on the "Recipe Buzz". I followed the recipe exactly however I wasn't very impressed. None of the mint flavor shone through but maybe I'm not used to the flavor of cooked mint. I usually use it fresh. I found it too salty as well. It was OK but I will try something else next time.

I am giving this fish a 4 on account of the family really did not care for it but I did.The mint was not very prominent I added 2 bunches of fresh mint for 2 1/2 lbs of fish. I used cilantro instead of the parsley. It was easy and quick. I tought it tasted really good! Thanks for an interesting take on salmon! Read More

This made the most succulent salmon I've had in a while. I used wild caught sockeye and marinated for about 3 hours before cooking on the grill. I was concerned that the mint might be overwhelming but it just tasted herbal. This took quite a bit longer to grill than the recipe indicated and I did not pull it off until it was looking a little overcooked (it was wonderfully moist and delicious). I did skip the brushing with butter - that would have added uneeded extra calories. Read More
