Here are our 30 Best Salmon Recipes! Rich in healthy fats (omega 3’s) and an excellent source of protein, salmon provides so many amazing health benefits.  Salmon is versatile, cooks up quickly and makes the whole meal feel more elegant: Easy Grilled Salmon.


Units Scale
  • 1 lb salmon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 medium lemon
  • 12 garlic cloves (optional), finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon thyme


  1. Preheat grill to medium.
  2. Cut salmon in to 4 pieces and place in a bowl. Lightly coat with olive oil,  season with salt and pepper and zest from one lemon. Add the garlic and thyme, gently tossing to coat.
  3. Cut the lemon in half and place on the grill, open side down.
  4. Place salmon on the grill, skin-side down first, and grill 4-6 minutes, covering. The skin should release itself naturally from the grill. Flip and cook for 2 more minutes or until your desired “doneness”. Keep in mind thinker pieces may take longer, and thin pieces may take less time.
  5. Squeeze with the grilled lemon.
  6. Serve salmon immediately or refrigerate for mid-week meals for up to 3 days.


No grill? You can also bake the salmon in  375F oven until cooked to your liking.
