Ingredients

  • 4 salmon fillets 4-6 ounces each
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • lemon wedges for serving

Instructions

  • Place the olive oil, honey, soy sauce, lemon zest, parsley, thyme, salt and pepper in a bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • Reserve 1 tablespoon of the marinade for later use. Add the garlic to the bowl.
  • Add the salmon and marinade to a resealable freezer bag and seal. Shake to coat the salmon with the marinade.
  • Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to 6 hours.
  • Remove the salmon from the marinade and scrape off any excess bits of herbs or garlic (otherwise they could burn on the grill!).
  • Grilling instructions: Preheat an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan over medium high heat. Add the salmon fillets and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side or until salmon is opaque throughout.
  • Oven instructions: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place the salmon fillets on a sheet pan lined with cooking spray. Bake for 15 minutes or until salmon is cooked through.
  • Brush the reserved marinade over the salmon fillets, then serve with lemon wedges if desired.
