Grilled Salmon

I’ve always loved eating salmon at seafood restaurants, but never knew how easy it was to cook at home until last year.  When you have three hungry teenagers to feed, fresh fish is not usually in the budget.  Now that there are just two of us in  the Hughey household, we have branched out to try nicer cuts of meat and fish.  When we decided to try our luck with grilling salmon the result was delicious!  This is  a perfect work night meal.  Your entire dinner can be prepared and cooked in less than 20 minutes!

1 Lb Salmon

1 Tbs Olive Oil

Juice of one lemon

1/4 Tsp Salt

Pinch Freshly Ground Black Pepper

2 Cloves Minced Garlic

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp dried oregano

Cut the fish into 4 equal size portions.  Combine olive oil, lemon juice, and spices in a bowl.  Brush into fish.

To Grill:  Arrange the fish on a grill rack or use a grill basket sprayed with olive oil cooking spray.  Grill over medium meat until the fish flakes easily (allow 4-6 minutes per ½ inch of thickness).  If the fish is more than 1 inch thick gently turn halfway through grilling.
