Simply The Best Salmon Marinade


Simply The Best Salmon Marinade – jgb

Earlier this month I made a promise on my Instagram feed that this recipe would be on the blog by midnight September 30th.

Time check as I write this: September 30th 6:40 PM. I may procrastinate but I keep my word  😉

While grilled salmon is not particularly a fall food this is a marinade we use weekly.

Now that we have discovered the individually wrapped, frozen Atlantic Sockeye Salmon Fillets at Costco this has become a super simple weekly meal and it is always delicious.

My marinade is soy-free & gluten free. I use grass-fed butter and recommend ghee if you cannot tolerate butter.


1-1/2 lb Salmon

1/2 Cup diced shallots (migraine friendly onion)

3-4 Garlic Cloves diced

2 Tbsp Grass-fed Butter

2 Tbsp EVOO

1/3 Cup Maple Syrup 

1 teaspoon fine grain Himalayan Pink Salt

1 Fresh Lemon

Fresh Parsley


  • Melt Butter in a medium sized bowl then let it cool slightly
  • Dice shallots and garlic
  • Mix: Melted Butter, Diced Shallots, Diced Garlic, EVOO, Maple Syrup, Himalayan Pink Salt in bowl
  • Place Salmon Fillets in a bag or container for marinating
  • Pour liquid marinade over salmon
  • Marinade for at least 30-60 minutes in the refrigetor

Preheat gas grill then lower to medium heat.

Place salmon skin side down on grill grates. Pour remaining marinade over salmon fillets.  Grill salmon for ~ 15-20 minutes undisturbed with until it flakes easily.

Garnish with Fresh Parsley

Serve with fresh lemon juice

Enjoy ❤
