Freshly squeezed lemon juice and ground turmeric join forces for a bright and fresh Lemon Turmeric Grilled Salmon recipe that is AIP, Paleo and Whole-30 friendly. After 30 minutes of marinating time, this grilled salmon is ready in under 10 minutes. Perfect for a quick lunch or dinner.
- Add the olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder and ground turmeric to a pint size mason jar or dressing bottle and shake vigorously until well combined.
- Add the salmon filets to a glass dish or gallon size plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the salmon and marinate in the fridge for 30-60 minutes. Remove from the fridge and bring to room temperature about 10 minutes before grilling.
- Preheat your grill to medium (about 350ºF). Once heated, add the marinated salmon filets to the grill and close the lid. Discard any leftover marinade.
- Grill the salmon, with the lid closed, for 3-4 minutes, or until it begins to lighten in color and is firm to the touch. Flip and grill another 2-4 minutes, or until salmon reaches 130ºF and flakes easily with a fork. Thicker filets may require longer cooking times. Remove and rest for 1-2 minutes before serving.
Best served fresh, as salmon does not reheat well. However, room temperature leftover salmon is delicious on salads or with leftover grilled veggies!
Will store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
