Vivian Pearson

CSMS Magazine


4 salmon fillets (about 6 oz each)

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and pepper, to taste

Lemon slices, for garnish

Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish


Preheat the Grill: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

    Prepare the Salmon: Brush each salmon fillet with olive oil and season with salt and pepper on both sides.

Grill the Salmon: Place the salmon fillets on the grill, skin-side down. Grill for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until the salmon is cooked through and easily flakes with a fork. The internal temperature should reach 145°F (63°C).

Rest and Garnish: Remove the salmon from the grill and let it rest for a couple of minutes. Garnish with lemon slices and chopped parsley before serving.

Lemon Garlic Sauce


1/4 cup unsalted butter

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth

2 tablespoons heavy cream

Salt and pepper, to taste

Fresh dill or parsley, chopped, for garnish


Melt the Butter: In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.

Sauté the Garlic: Add the minced garlic to the melted butter and sauté for about 1 minute, until fragrant.

Add Lemon Juice and Zest: Stir in the lemon juice and lemon zest, then add the broth. Bring the mixture to a simmer.

    Finish the Sauce: Reduce the heat to low and stir in the heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Continue to cook for another 1-2 minutes, until the sauce is slightly thickened.

Serve: Spoon the lemon garlic sauce over the grilled salmon fillets and garnish with fresh dill or parsley.
