How To Make Lemon Garlic Herb Grilled Salmon

Filled with the smoky flavor from the grill, this Grilled Salmon that’s marinated in a fresh and delightful lemon garlic herb marinade will surely be a hit!

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Marinate Time: 30 minutes
Total: 50 minutes



  • 4salmon fillets,(6 to 7 oz) skinless
  • ¼cupfresh lemon juice
  • ¼cupolive oil,plus more for brushing the grill
  • 2tbspfresh parsley,finely minced, plus more for garnish
  • 4tspfresh rosemary,finely minced
  • 2tspfresh thyme,finely minced
  • 2tspgarlic,(2 cloves), minced
  • 2tspfresh lemon zest
  • 1tspdijon mustard
  • 1tsphoney
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Place the salmon in an 11×7-inch dish.

  2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, rosemary, thyme, garlic, lemon zest, dijon mustard, honey, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper until well combined.

  3. Pour the mixture over salmon (lift the fillets to help the marinade run under) then cover and let marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes, turning once halfway through.

  4. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat during the last 10 minutes of marinating the salmon.

  5. Brush the grill grates with oil, spoon some of the herbs onto salmon (or just use hands to spread them over), remove the salmon from marinade, and place on the grill.

  6. Grill for about 3 to 5 minutes per side to cook through.

  7. Serve warm, garnished with more parsley if desired.

Recipe Notes

  • Thinner fillets won’t work well for grilling. Look for a side of salmon or fillets that are at least 1 to 1½-inches thick.
  • Always preheat the grill, preferably to medium-high heat. Preheating usually takes about 5 to 10 minutes, or more on cold days.
