Grilled Salmon with Lemon Oil and Basil

Grilled Salmon with Lemon Oil and Basil

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 4
Especially delicious served right off the grill, this salmon is drizzled with lemon oil, which is very fragrant and flavorful yet does not overpower the bold taste of the fish. Serve with couscous and grilled tomatoes, eggplant and peppers.


  • 4 salmon fillets, each 5 to 7 oz.
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • Grapeseed oil for brushing
  • 4 tsp. lemon-infused olive oil
  • 8 fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped


Prepare a hot fire in a grill or heat a stovetop grill pan over medium-high heat.

Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper and brush with grapeseed oil. Place the fillets on the grill or in the grill pan and cook, turning once, until the fish is firm to the touch, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Transfer the fillets to warmed plates. Drizzle each fillet with about 1 tsp. of the lemon oil and garnish with the basil. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
