This grilled salmon recipe is not only easy to prepare, but delicious as well. Remember to squeeze fresh lime juice onto the fillet as it comes off the grill to enhance its flavors even more. This grilled salmon is cooked indirectly so that it slow poaches, keeping it from drying out.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 18 minutes

Total Time: 28 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 4 salmon fillets, about 6 ounces each
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4-6 lime wedges


Preheat grill for medium heat. Place salmon fillets in a shallow pan. Combine 2 teaspoons lime juice,spices, sugar, and garlic. Spread mixture evenly over fillets. Place salmon skin side down onto grill and cook indirectly for about 18 to 20 minutes, or until fish flakes easily. Remember not to turn the salmon when it is on the grill. Once cooked, remove from grill and squeeze fresh lime juice on each fillet before serving.

Wife loved it too!, Member randjf

Of course, I had to put my own fingerprint on the recipe: 1) Double the seasonings, except the sugar. 2) Turn the salmon over near the end to get grill marks. 3) Remove the skin and squeeze the lime wedges over the side where the skin was. 4) Turn them back over for a minute or two to evaporate the water from the lime. Bulls-eye!
