Lemon Herb Grilled Salmon Recipe

Who loves Salmon? I simply love it especially made this way. However, I am not picky at all. When it comes down to this delicious fish, I could eat it pretty much any possible way prepared.

I really try to make fish and serve it to my family at least once a week. One tip though, always get salmon that is Wild caught, opposed to getting the one that is farm raised.

You would think that they taste the same, and you are getting identical nutrition, but no, there is a difference.

Lemon Herb Grilled Salmon Recipe

Do not get me wrong, I bought a farm-raised salmon many times, but I try to get wild caught when it is avalable to me.

Atlantic salmon and Pacific salmon look similar on the outside. But between species and even within the same species, each type of salmon can have different flavors, textures, and flesh color.

Again depends on my availability, I switch between Atlantic and Pacific Salmon. Now, if the salmon is frozen, try to defrost it. For quick-thawing, place frozen package in cool water for approximately 20 minutes. Once deforsted, immediately cook or refrigerate.

  • 1 1/2 pounds Salmon with skin
  • 1/2 tablespoon Lemon Zest
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted Butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Freshly Chopped Dill
  • 1 teaspoon Freshly Chopped Parsley
  • Lemon slices for the garnish
  • Wood pellets: MESQUITE or HICKORY


  1. When ready to cook, set the temperature to 325F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  2. Combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, softened unsalted butter, dill, parsley, sea salt, and ground black pepper.
  3. Generously slather the top of the salmon fillet with the mixture and top with a slice of lemon. You may allow marinating for about 10 minutes or so to absorb the mixture.
  4. Place the salmon fillets on the hot grill grate, skin-side facing down.
  5. Cook for 20 to 25 minutes, until it reaches an internal temperature of 145F and flakes easily, or until the salmon is cooked to your preferred taste.

    Serve with Lemon slices and perhaps garlic-butter dip

Recipe Notes

How long do you cook salmon in the oven?

  • It will depend on the size and the thickness of your salmon, of course. If your filet is thick I’d say about 25 minutes in the oven at 400ºF. But it has a normal size I would say about 15 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with a fork.

Salmon Bibimbap — Korean Rice Bowl

Salmon Bibimbap — Korean Rice Bowl

Every now and then, I find myself making rice bowls. They are truly convenient, and they do get me through my busy schedule. It is important to say that they are also very simple, versatile and delightful.  If the kids are in school, I normally take a break in the afternoon from photo shoots, writing and editing and I eat my lunch in peace.
From time to time, my husband joins me for lunch, or I make extra for my daughter, who happens to love Bibimbap, in particular with Sweet and Spicy Salmon.
This time, I have been using my favorite Salmon Pouch by Chicken of the Sea and combined it with Minute Ready To Serve Rice. Seriously, this one was the quickest meals without losing an amazing taste. The combo just screams comfort as well as health, Don’t you agree with me?
Many of you that follow me for some time, know that I am a huge fan of Korean cuisine, so it’s not a brainer that I made bibimbap, to share with you today. It’s one of those dishes that you can add whatever you have or crave at the moment, or perhaps you might use what is in the season. I believe making Minute Rice is the best thing ever, and on top of it adding Chicken of the sea. YUM!
I even made it just with that combination and addition of my homemade spicy kimchi. If you ask me, that’s pretty mess-free meal. Chicken of the Sea pouch is very portable, too. Just like Minute® Ready to Serve Rice, they’re wholesome and convenient, creating a tasty lunch alternative.

Bibimbap (비빔밥) means literally mixed rice if you translate. Bibimbap is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste), soy sauce, or doenjang, a fermented soybean paste. A raw or fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common additions. When I say a raw egg, I mean that the rice is served in the hot stone pot (dolsot bibimbap) with piping hot rice, and when you add an egg and mix it, it cooks almost instantly. The hot dish is stirred together thoroughly just before eating.

You have so many different versions that are similar to each other, and it is made depending on the season, as well as the place where you live. A further variation of bibimbap uses a variety of seafood, mostly raw, such as tilapia, salmon, tuna or sometimes octopus, but each bowl of rice usually contains only one variety of seafood or meat. The dish is also very popular among the coasts of Korea, where fish are abundant.

Some facts about Chicken of the Sea that you might do not know:

  • Chicken of the Sea® (COS) created National Salmon Day in 2015 as a public service to celebrate the nutrition and heart-health benefits of America’s second-most-consumed fish. October 8 is an annual celebration to commemorate the health, taste, convenience and diverse recipe benefits of wild and packaged salmon. Chicken of the Sea worked with Chase’s Calendar of Events, the definitive, authoritative reference for annual dates and observances, to formalize the national holiday designation in 2016.
  • For more information on National Salmon Day, go to Visitors can receive recipes, serving suggestions and nutritional and meal-planning insights as well as information on the latest new products.

Personally, I always have Chicken of the sea and Minute Ready To Serve Rice in my pantry, simply because they’re delicious and nutritious and second, it’s convenient to eat on the go type of food.  When I am feeling low, and slow this also helps me to unwind and enjoy Cooking Free day. I hope you like one of my favorite Bibimbap combinations.

Seafood leader Chicken of the Sea ranks the Music City
among the Top U.S. markets for actual and untapped salmon consumption
The Little Clinic will help spread the healthy-eating message

NASHVILLE (August 25, 2016) – Hold the Hot Chicken and Meat & Three. A study by one of the world’s largest providers of seafood suggests that Nashville locals may actually prefer salmon.
The internal study, conducted by Chicken of the Sea, ranked Nashville among the Top 10 Salmon Cities in the United States. This means that local Nashville residents eat more fresh and shelf-stable salmon per person than their counterparts in other U.S. cities, have the potential to eat more salmon or are more likely to try new salmon products, prepare salmon recipes or order salmon as a meal.

“Despite its reputation for beef and chicken dishes, Nashville is among the most sophisticated seafood markets in the country and home to an increasing number of seafood and salmon lovers,” said Maureen McDonnell, Chicken of the Sea’s director of brand marketing and category management. “We’d like to think that traditional protein lovers in Nashville are more likely to occasionally trade their brisket for a hearty salmon recipe. From a seafood and salmon standpoint, Nashville is a trendsetter.”

This year’s National Salmon Day festivities, include Chicken of the Sea partnering with Minute® Rice in September for the “Salmon Loves Rice Sweepstakes,” and asking the public to use hashtag #NationalSalmonDay on their social media platforms to answer salmon trivia questions for a chance to win a 10-day Alaskan cruise and Chicken of the Sea Flavored Salmon Pouches and Minute® Rice Ready to Serve Rice products.

To help it spread its message of salmon as a healthy lean protein alternative throughout Nashville, Chicken of the Sea is joining forces with The Little Clinic inside Kroger. Dietitians with The Little Clinic will be promoting the nutritional benefits of salmon with its patients around National Salmon Day, providing educational materials and hosting in-store events for Kroger shoppers in select stores.
The company provides a multitude of salmon recipes, serving and meal-planning suggestions on its website,, and through its Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram pages.
