Grilled Salmon with 4 Ingredient Orange Herb Marinade

I love to encourage my clients to get playful with their food. Have fun with it! Try new foods or try preparing foods in different ways! Maybe you don’t love the raw onions in your salad, but grilled with fajitas is a total game-changer!

Grilled salmon is one of those things, that while I always have enjoyed it while out at a restaurant and I adore salmon period, I had one disastrous grilling attempt years ago, and have since foregone grilling salmon at home.

Well, I’m not sure why I waited so long to try it again. This grilled salmon with a four ingredient orange herb marinade could not be any easier! And I don’t know if you can tell by the photos, but this grilled salmon turned out awesome.

I think the key is not to have the heat turned to high. This time I kept the grill at more of a medium heat, between 350-400 degrees. I left the salmon on one side for 3-4 minutes, then used a grill spatula to gently turn it over for another 3-4 minutes. (In my experience, when the protein is ready to be turned it will come off the grates for more easily.) It couldn’t get easier!

The other thing that couldn’t get any easier with this grilled salmon is the orange herb marinade. It’s just four ingredients that most of you probably have in your house right now! Marinate for 1-2 hours, then grill time!

  1. This looks so good! I am always looking for new ways to make salmon. We don't have a grill right now so I am hoping I don't burn it too much making it in the oven!
  2. I haven't tried this recipe specifically in the oven, but I bet you could cook in at 350 for around 8-10 minutes? Depends on size/ thickness of your salmon. Or even cook in a cast iron or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat! Let me know how it goes if you try it with either of those methods! :)
