Grilled Citrus Herb Salmon

No time to marinade? No problem! Salmon fillets get topped with fresh cilantro, thyme, lemon and lime zest, garlic, and olive oil and then grilled. An easy and stunning summer dinner!

I'm usually not the one doing the grilling in this family. Ok, maybe I'm NEVER the one doing the grilling in my family! It doesn't mean I can't, I just don't have to! When we're at home, Paul does the grilling and when we're at my parents, my dad always does the grilling. 

Come on guys, I do ALL of the other cooking, I can take a break - can't I?

See, even this super easy grilled salmon isn't completely a break for me because I prepare the salmon all the way up until it goes on the grill! Hey, I just realized how unfair that is...

Grate Chef sent me several of their best grilling products to try on our next grill night. Their products are pretty ingenious and they worked amazingly well! First, I tried the Stainless Steel Grill Wipes. 

Please tell me I'm not the only one who has never cleaned the outside of a grill before!

I honestly expected to use WAY more elbow grease to get a shine on that baby, but those wipes worked awesome! Just look at that gross-ness, yuck!

And I have to say, the Flare Down was awesome! This works really well when you're cooking high fat foods (burgers, in my case) that drip down and can cause flares and then burn your food. 

Their Grill Wipes are pretty awesome, too. As you clean the blackened, burnt on gunk (or as my husband and dad loving to refer to it as "flavoring") it actually oils the grates so that your food won't stick. This was great to use before cooking fish!

Speaking of fish, this was probably the easiest salmon recipe I've ever made and it tasted absolutely out of this world good! The citrus herb spread takes all of about 5 minutes to stir together, then you just spread it on the fillets, and give it to your guy to grill. Dinner - done!

Grilled Citrus Herb Salmon

4 medium salmon fillets
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped fine
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
zest of 2 lemons
zest of 2 limes
addtional lemon slices, if desired

In a small bowl, combine cilantro, thyme, olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, and lime zest. Spread evenly on top of all four salmon fillets. Grill over medium heat about 10 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve with additional lemon slices.

I really love how quick this can be thrown together, and yet have it taste like you just ordered it at a restaurant for a fraction of the cost! Total score, am I right?!

  6. I can hardly remember to marinate meat for dinner, so I love that this recipe is for a sauce instead of a marinade!
