The Lemon Garlic Butter Grilled Salmon is more than a dish; it's a symphony of flavors, a fusion of freshness and depth that transforms a simple fillet into a gourmet sensation.
4 salmon fillets
1/4 cup (60g) butter, melted
4 cloves garlic, minced
Zest of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
Prepare the Salmon:
Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels.
Season both sides with salt and pepper.
Prepare the Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce:
In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, minced garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, and chopped dill.
Marinate the Salmon:
Brush the lemon garlic butter sauce over the salmon fillets, ensuring they are evenly coated.
Allow the salmon to marinate for at least 15-30 minutes. You can let it marinate in the refrigerator for a more intense flavor.
Preheat the Grill:
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Make sure the grates are clean and lightly oiled to prevent sticking.
Grill the Salmon:
Place the marinated salmon fillets on the preheated grill.
Grill for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until the salmon easily flakes with a fork. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of your salmon fillets.
Baste with Remaining Sauce:
While grilling, baste the salmon with the remaining lemon garlic butter sauce to keep it moist and flavorful.
Once the salmon is cooked through, transfer it to a serving platter.
Garnish with additional fresh dill and lemon slices if desired.
Enjoy: Serve the Lemon Garlic Butter Grilled Salmon hot, alongside your favorite keto-friendly side dishes.
