Grilled Salmon in a Fish Grilling Basket: A Flavorful Delight

Grilling salmon is a fantastic way to bring out its natural flavors and create a delicious, healthy meal. And when it comes to grilling fish, using a fish grilling basket is a game-changer. It keeps the delicate salmon fillets intact, prevents them from sticking to the grill grates, and allows for even cooking. In this recipe, we'll show you how to grill salmon to perfection using a fish grilling basket.

To make this mouthwatering dish, you'll need:

- 4 salmon fillets: Choose fresh, high-quality fillets for the best results.

- 2 lemons: Lemons add a refreshing citrusy flavor to the salmon.

- 4 cloves of garlic: Garlic adds a delightful aroma and depth of flavor.

- 1/4 cup of olive oil: Olive oil helps to keep the salmon moist and tender.

- Salt and pepper to taste: Season the salmon fillets to your liking.

- Fish grilling basket: This essential tool ensures easy grilling and prevents the fish from falling apart.

Here's how to prepare and grill the salmon:

1. Marinate the salmon fillets: In a bowl, combine the lemon juice, minced garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place the salmon fillets in the marinade and let them soak for about 15-30 minutes. This step infuses the salmon with incredible flavors.

2. Preheat the grill and the fish grilling basket: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. While the grill is heating up, place the fish grilling basket on the grill grates to preheat as well. This ensures that the salmon cooks evenly and doesn't stick to the basket.

3. Place the marinated salmon fillets in the grilling basket: Once the grill and the grilling basket are preheated, carefully place the marinated salmon fillets in the basket. Make sure to arrange them in a single layer for even cooking.

4. Grill the salmon: Close the grill lid and let the salmon cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the fillets. Keep an eye on them to avoid overcooking. The salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork.

5. Serve and enjoy: Remove the grilled salmon from the grilling basket and transfer it to a serving platter. Garnish with lemon slices for an extra burst of flavor. Serve the salmon hot and savor every delicious bite.

Notes: Feel free to customize this recipe to suit your taste. You can adjust the amount of garlic, lemon, salt, and pepper according to your preferences. For a different flavor profile, experiment with adding your favorite herbs and spices to the marinade.
