  • Mix honey, lemon juice, and basil together in a bowl.

  • Preheat a clean outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Grill salmon fillets on the hot grill. Cook the first side for 3 to 5 minutes, depending on thickness of the fish. Turn fish and lightly baste with honey-lemon mixture. Grill another 3 minutes and turn so honey side is down. Baste top of salmon with honey mixture and grill until just warmed on this side, approximately 1 minute more.

Cook's Note:

I have cooked this salmon on gas and coals. Even though I am a fan of charcoal, I find the gas easier for grilling fish.
