Grilled Salmon with Garlic, Lemon, and Basil

We found that fish cooks best on a nonstick grill pan with a dome-shaped lid, so the fish steams while it gets great grill marks. Serve with a tossed green salad and couscous.

Cooking Light JANUARY 2006

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1 tablespoon sauce)

Ingredients

  • Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salmon:
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

To prepare sauce, combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.

To prepare fish, heat a nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle fish evenly with salt and pepper; add fish to pan. Cover and grill 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with sauce.
