Grilled Salmon and Lemons with Herbs

Serves 8
Time 20 min
This beautiful salmon dish is quick and easy, but still impressive. Any leftover salmon is great in green salads, pasta salads, omelets or sandwiches.
Ingredients
  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil plus more for the grill
  • 1 (2 1/2-pound) skin-on side of salmon pin bones removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 lemons halved
  • 2 tablespoons mixed chopped fresh herbs such as tarragon, marjoram, thyme and parsley
Method

Oil grill grates, then preheat grill to medium-high heat. Meanwhile, brush salmon all over with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Arrange salmon on grill, skin-side down and cook, gently flipping once, until golden brown on both sides and cooked to desired doneness, up to about 15 minutes total. To flip the salmon, use two large spatulas. Or use a rimless baking sheet to help you flip the salmon and slide it back onto the grill to cook on the second side.

Meanwhile, arrange lemons on grill, cut-sides down and grill until deep golden brown and fragrant, 5 to 7 minutes. When done, carefully transfer salmon to a large platter, scatter herbs over the top and serve with lemons on the side for squeezing.
