Grilled Marinated Salmon

This grilled salmon can be fixed with either salmon steaks or fillets. The dill, garlic, and lemon marinade flavors the salmon then acts as a basting sauce.


  • 4 salmon steaks or fillets
  • Marinade:
  • juice of 2 lemons, about 1/4 cup
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped dill or 1 teaspoon dried dillweed
  • 1 clove garlic, minced


Place salmon in a shallow, non-reactive dish. Combine marinade ingredients; pour over salmon. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours. 

Remove the salmon from the marinade and pour the marinade into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and set aside.. 

Grill salmon directly over medium coals, basting with the boiled marinade, for about 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily.

Serves 4.

Light, healthy, elegant and simple salmon marinad!, Member barbidoll31

Use olive oil instead of vegetable oil and this is a the perfect light, healthy, elegant and simple salmon marinade. I only marinated for less than an hour and it was still wonderfully flavorful. Thanks for the recipe!
