I love to encourage my clients to experiment and 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 I always have enjoyed it while out at a restaurant and I adore cooking salmon in the skillet, I had one disastrous grilling attempt years ago (envision salmon totally falling apart all over the grill and through the grates), 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.

The key is not to have the heat turned too 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 it’s grill time!

    • 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! 🙂

  1. i don’t have a grill either….and i was thinking same thing…cooking at fairly hi heat over the burner in non stick skillet……it’s just me and my niece that would like this so would cut recipe in 1/2 .
