Grilled Garlic and Lime Salmon Fillets Recipe

Salmon fillets are one of our favorite seafood dishes – they’re an easily located and prepped dish that’s extremely versatile and delicious. For this recipe, you’ll be preparing a salmon fillet that’s a bit more traditional tasting with a sweet-spicy combination of lemon and garlic.

Grilled Garlic and Lime Salmon Fillets

However, what makes this dish stands out is the preparation – instead of drizzling a lemon-infused sauce over your fillets, you’ll be steaming them above a bed of sliced lemons laid directly on your grill.

This is such an easy technique for getting a perfect lemon flavor into your salmon, but anyone that watches will be fascinated to see this process in action – you’ll give your guests a delicious dinner and a show!

In addition to the taste and amazing preparation of this dish, your plate will be brimming with the nutritional benefits of salmon. Omega-3’s, Vitamin D, Vitamin B, magnesium… all of these and more are plentiful in this dish. The downside of salmon is finding fish that are actually wild-caught, though.

Many supermarkets will typically carry farmed varieties, and wild-caught salmon tends to be a bit more expensive. A visit to your seafood counter (or local seafood market, if you’re lucky) can help answer questions about where your salmon is sourced.

This grilled salmon dish works well with nearly any side option, so keep things on the grill with this grilled zucchini and leeks recipe – it takes just a bit less cooking, leaving you time to prep these with dressing just as your salmon is finished up.
