Barbecuing adds amazing smoky tones to salmon and the seasoned margarine takes it over the best with crisp summer enhance. Your guest will be talking over this salmon formula. It will end up being your go-to for barbecuing season and you'll make it over and over! This flame broiled salmon formula is simple with only 15 minutes of marinating time.
|Servings: 6||Prep Time: 25 Mins||Cook Time: 15 Mins|
- 1/2 cup 8 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 4 cloves garlic smashed (NOT PRESSED)
- 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice from 1 lime plus lime wedges to serve
- 2 Tbsp fresh dill chopped, plus more to garnish
- 1 tsp salt we use sea salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 2 lbs salmon skin-on, cut into 6 (6-oz each) fillets
Follow these salmon grilling guidelines for med/high heat (350˚F):
1″ thick fillets = 3 minutes per side
3/4″ thick fillets = 2-3 minutes per side
1/2″ thick fillets = 2 minutes per side
In a small saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter over medium heat. Smash 4 garlic cloves with the flat of a large knife and add to melted butter along with 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Simmer 2 mins or until fragrant. Add chopped dill and 2 Tbsp lime juice then remove from heat. Transfer half of sauce to a small bowl. Reserve and set aside remaining sauce in the pan - you will use this for serving.
Arrange salmon fillets on a platter skin-side-down and brush tops with 1/4 of the sauce from the bowl. Let salmon marinate in refrigerator 15 mins while grill preheats.
Preheat grill to medium/high (350˚F). Brush the hot grill clean and oil the grates**. Place salmon onto preheated grill, skin-side-down. Cover and grill over medium/high (350˚F) heat undisturbed, about 2 minutes on the first side.
Carefully flip salmon over (it helps to have a spatula to loosen it and tongs to flip it over), cover and cook another 2 minutes. Flip again and (while wearing the oven mitt and starting with the filets at the back), brush tops with 1/4 of remaining sauce from the bowl. Cover and continue grilling just until salmon is flaky and cooked through (another minute, or according to grilling chart below depending on salmon thickness).
Remove salmon from grill and drizzle with sauce reserved in the saucepan (if butter has hardened, heat just until melted). Garnish with fresh dill and serve with lime wedges to squeeze over salmon if desired.
