  • 4 tablespoons fresh sweet basil, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice 

  • Four 5-ounce salmon fillets

  • Cracked black pepper to taste

  • 4 green olives, chopped

  • 4 thin slices lemon 



  • Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill, or heat a gas grill or broiler. Away from the heat source, lightly coat the grill rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4-6 inches from the heat source.

  • In a small bowl, combine the basil, parsley, minced garlic, and lemon juice. Spray the fish with cooking spray. Sprinkle with the black pepper.

  • Top each fillet with equal amounts of the basil-garlic mixture. Place the fish herb-side down on the grill. Grill over high heat. When the edges turn white, after about 3-4 minutes, turn the fish over and place on aluminum foil. Move the fish to a cooler part of the grill, or reduce the heat.

  • Grill until the fish is opaque throughout when tested with the tip of a knife and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the fish reads 145�F (about 4 minutes longer).

  • Remove the salmon, and place on warmed plates. Garnish with green olives and lemon slices.
