Grilled Salmon with Balsamic and Rosemary Marinade


A quick way to make your salmon perfect every time! Serve with lemon wedges and garnish with rosemary sprigs.

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 35 Minutes
Cook Time: 5 Minutes


• Four 4-oz wild salmon fillets
• Course sea salt to taste
• 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
• 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
• 1/4 cup lemon juice
• 1 clove garlic, minced
• 1 sprig fresh rosemary, minced
• 1 lemon, cut into wedges
• Rosemary sprigs for garnish


Season salmon fillets to taste with sea salt, and place into a shallow, glass dish.

Whisk together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and rosemary; pour over salmon fillets. Cover, and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate. Remove salmon from marinade. Discard remaining marinade.

Place the salmon fillets on the preheated grill for about 4 minutes. Resist the urge to move the fish - you want to develop nice grill marks! Carefully flip the fish and cook until it is opaque.
