Directions

  1. Preheat a grill for medium-high heat. Place the grill rack 5 inches from the heat source.
  2. In a blender or food processor combine the mint and parsley with the lemon juice, garlic, honey, olive oil, salt and pepper. Blend into a smooth paste. Spread the herb paste over the salmon fillets and allow to marinate for five minutes.
  3. Remove salmon from marinade, and discard remaining marinade. Lightly oil the grill, then grill salmon for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes when tested with a fork.
  4. Brush the fillets with melted butter and garnish with lemon slices and mint sprigs before serving.

I really enjoyed the mint flavor that came through here. I used a combination of pineapple mint and spearmint that I had growing in the garden.

I personally love fresh mint, and was excited when I was recommended this recipe on the "Recipe Buzz". I followed the recipe exactly, however I wasn't very impressed. None of the mint flavor shone through, but maybe I'm not used to the flavor of cooked mint. I usually use it fresh. I found it too salty as well. It was OK but I will try something else next time.

I am giving this fish a 4 on account of the family really did not care for it but I did.The mint was not very prominent, I added 2 bunches of fresh mint for 2 1/2 lbs of fish. I used cilantro instead of the parsley. It was easy and quick. I tought it tasted really good! Thanks for an interesting take on salmon!

This recipe will knock your socks off. I made this tonight and it was fantastic. It definitely is a keeper. I served it with steamed Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes.

This made the most succulent salmon I've had in a while. I used wild caught sockeye and marinated for about 3 hours before cooking on the grill. I was concerned that the mint might be overwhelming, but it just tasted herbal. This took quite a bit longer to grill than the recipe indicated, and I did not pull it off until it was looking a little overcooked (it was wonderfully moist and delicious). I did skip the brushing with butter - that would have added uneeded extra calories.
