Excuse the poor photography in this post…let’s focus on this delicious salmon instead! My husband and I both loved this salmon. The fish is grilled, then topped with a savory sauce that really makes it stand out. The day I made this I had to use my indoor grill, but of course this would be amazing grilled outside. The sauce is very simple and easy to make–I used a food processor to grind everything together, but you can use a mortar and pestle or skip that step all together by making sure to mince your garlic very finely or mash it into a paste. Then just whisk the other ingredients together with the garlic! If you are looking for a change to your regular baked/grilled salmon recipe, try this one!! It is awesome, and chances are you probably have everything you need already in your pantry.
Grilled Garlic Dijon Herb Salmon
- 4 garlic cloves
- 1 tsp dried Herbs de Provence
- 1 tsp red wine vinegar
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
- olive oil spray (I used my misto)
- 4 (6 oz) wild salmon fillets, 1″ thick (if frozen, thaw first)
- salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
- 4 lemon wedges for serving
1). In a mini food processor, or using a mortar and pestle mash garlic with the herbs, vinegar, oil, and Dijon mustard until it becomes a paste. Set aside.
2) Season salmon with salt and pepper. Preheat your indoor or outdoor grill to medium-high. If necessary, spray your grill with cooking spray and reduce heat to medium-low. Place the salmon on the grill and do not move for 5 minutes.
3) Turn the salmon and cook the other side for 3-4 minutes. Spoon half of the dijon herb sauce on top of the salmon. Turn 1 more time and spoon the remaining half of the suace on that side of the salmon. Note: your fish should have a total cooking time of 9-10 minutes per inch of thickness! If your fish is thinner, reduce the cooking time.
