This Grilled Lemon Herb Salmon recipe has been a family favorite for years. The combination of fresh herbs and lemon creates a bright and flavorful dish that's perfect for summer barbecues or cozy dinners at home.

I first tried this recipe at a friend's barbecue, and I was instantly hooked. The salmon was tender, juicy, and full of flavor. Since then, I've made it countless times and shared it with friends and family who always rave about it.

Not only is this dish incredibly tasty, but it's also packed with health benefits. Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for maintaining heart health and brain function. Plus, the herbs and lemon add a burst of antioxidants and vitamins.


  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lemon, sliced


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, dried basil, dried parsley, salt, and black pepper to create the marinade.
  2. Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them. Turn the fillets to ensure they are evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Lightly oil the grill grates to prevent sticking.
  4. Remove the salmon from the marinade and discard the excess marinade. Place the salmon fillets on the grill, skin-side down, and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
  5. During the last minute of cooking, place the lemon slices on the grill and cook until slightly charred.
  6. Transfer the cooked salmon to a serving platter and garnish with the grilled lemon slices.
