Grilled Salmon With Mustard & Herbs

Grilled Salmon With Mustard & Herbs
This Recipe Is:

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

Salmon cooks over a bed of lemon and fresh herbs to infuse it with flavor and keep the fish tender and moist. We like a blend of thyme, tarragon and oregano, but any of your favorite herbs will work. Make it a meal: Serve with grilled new potatoes tossed in an herb vinaigrette and steamed green beans.

Ingredients
Prep: 15 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes
  • lemons, thinly sliced, plus 1 lemon cut into wedges for garnish
  • 20-30 sprigs
    mixed fresh herbs, plus 2 tablespoons chopped, divided
  • 1 clove
    garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    salt
  • 1 tablespoon
    Dijon mustard
  • 1 pound
    center-cut salmon, skinned (see Tip)
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Lay two 9-inch pieces of heavy-duty foil on top of each other and place on a rimless baking sheet. Arrange lemon slices in two layers in the center of the foil. Spread herb sprigs over the lemons. With the side of a chef’s knife, mash garlic with salt to form a paste. Transfer to a small dish and stir in mustard and the remaining 2 tablespoons chopped herbs. Spread the mixture over both sides of the salmon. Place the salmon on the herb sprigs.
  3. Slide the foil and salmon off the baking sheet onto the grill without disturbing the salmon-lemon stack. Cover the grill; cook until the salmon is opaque in the center, 18 to 24 minutes. Wearing oven mitts, carefully transfer foil and salmon back onto the baking sheet. Cut the salmon into 4 portions and serve with lemon wedges (discard herb sprigs and lemon slices).

 

Tip

Tip: How to skin a salmon fillet: Place skin-side down. Starting at the tail end, slip a long knife between the fish flesh and the skin, holding down firmly with your other hand. Gently push the blade along at a 30° angle, separating the fillet from the skin without cutting through either.
