Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat Grill and spray a grill pan liberally with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Original Spray.
  • In a small bowl or mortar and pestle, combine the garlic, lemon juice, rosemary, salt and pepper. Use the pestle or the end of a small glass to crush the garlic and rosemary into the lemon juice, creating a paste.
  • Spread the garlic paste over each piece of salmon, using it all. Allow to cool in the fridge for 20 minutes with the paste over the salmon.
  • Remove salmon from the fridge and spray each piece of salmon 4 times with the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Original Spray.
  • Flip the salmon over so it's skin side up on the grill pan and spray the bottom of each piece with the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Original Spray spray.
  • Grill, covered, for 4-5 minutes, then flip each salmon filet. Spray again with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Original Spray (about 2 sprays per filet) and cover again, cooking for an additional 6-8 minutes.
  • Once salmon is fully cooked through (it will be flakey and have an internal temp of at least 145F), remove from the grill and serve.
  • We love this dish served with our Lemon Butter Asparagus, linked above.
  • Enjoy!
