Simple Stand By Grilled Salmon

It is clean out the closet week on MMoM – and I don’t mean literally. This summer I’ve made a lot of low profile meals – from Sunday suppers to casual weeknight meals – and I’ve taken notes and photos but havent posted them. They aren’t the most glamorous but they do stand as go-to recipes for easy meals or one  – or for many. This salmon recipe is a great example.

I made Sara Foster’s grilled salmon very last-minute for two friends coming over on a Sunday evening. They brought the sides and the wine – I just needed 10 minutes to grill and set the table!

Sara Foster’s Grilled Salmon


  • 4 salmon filets, about 6 ounces each
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce or tamari
  • half an orange, juiced
  • 6 to 8 basil leaves, chopped
  • salt and pepper

Assembly: Combine all the ingredients except for the salmon. Whisk together to make a marinade. Add the salmon and coat. Marinate the salmon, skin side down, for an hour or up to overnight. When ready to grill, throw them on a hot grill (skin side down) for about 4 minutes per side.
