While trying to eat healthily, I came across this great grilled Salmon recipe. I've made it for my parents in Florida a couple times and they loved it. It works great with a nice salad or over pasta as pictured above.


Prep 15m Cook 45m





  • 6 (6-oz) pieces center-cut salmon fillet (about 1 inch thick) with skin

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated the fresh lime zest


Lime Butter Sauce:

  • 1 large garlic clove, chopped

  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted





Purée garlic with lime juice, salt, and pepper in a blender until smooth. With motor running, add melted butter and blend until emulsified, about 30 seconds.


Prepare grill for cooking over medium-hot charcoal (moderate heat for gas).


Season salmon all over with salt and pepper, then grill, flesh sides down, on lightly oiled grill rack (covered only if using gas grill) 4 minutes. Turn fillets over and grill (covered only if using the gas grill) until just cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes more. Sprinkle fillets with zest and top each with 1 tablespoon lime butter sauce.
