A great summertime recipe for grilled salmon fillets. An herb and lemon marinade makes for a wonderfully light and flavorful preparation. Grilled onions would be an excellent addition!

My family doesn't eat fish that often and I was looking for a fast and easy grilling recipe. After reading reviews of not having much flavor I tweaked it to my families taste and we all enjoyed it even the kids. What I did add was lemon pepper and 3 cloves of garlic and 2 lemons. Would make this again and experiment more with it. Read More

We thought this was just OK. I will use as a base and add soy sauce brandy and brown sugar. Read More

I made this last nighit and it was great! I used salmon steaks with fresh thyme and parsley from our garden and served it with brown rice and asparagus spears. Desertquilter had a nice idea about adding capers - I'll try that next time. This would be an elegant and easy meal for company! Thanks Morgan! Read More

This was terrific! I would highly recommend marinating for at least an hour -- more is even better. In addition thyme is a very strong spice so I reduced it by about half. Instead of grilling I baked my fish at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Be sure and sprinkle with salt and pepper after grilling/baking. This was wonderful served with a rice pilaf and vegetable. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
