5 Sizzling Summer Seafood Recipes


4. Juicy Grilled Salmon

Quick and delicious, this recipe takes the fish to the grill, keeping your kitchen clean and fresh. Serve with a fresh salad and grilled corn on the cob for a complete meal.


  • 4 salmon steaks
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¾ cup lemon juice
  • 3-4 green onions, chopped (white and green)
  • 1½ tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • ½ teaspoon chopped fresh basil
  • Salt and pepper

Combine oil, lemon juice, green onions, parsley, rosemary, thyme, and basil in a glass bowl. Whisk well. Set aside ¼ cup of the marinade and pour the rest over the salmon. Cover and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Remove salmon and discard used marinade. Grill over medium-high heat, basting often with reserved marinade, for about 10 minutes per side, or until fish flakes easily when cut with a fork.

Not a salmon fan? Use swordfish instead! Its meaty texture lends itself well to this marinade. Add ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper and the zest of one lemon to your marinade.
