Grilled salmon is a quick, flavorful, healthy dinner. This Key West grilled salmon recipe uses citrus and spices to amp up the flavor! 


1/3 cup lime juice (2 limes)
2 TB olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp celery seeds
1/8 tsp black pepper
Few drops hot pepper sauce
4 salmon steaks (1 1/2 lbs total)
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1 TB water
2 tsp honey (recipe calls for 1/4 tsp but I didn’t think that was enough)


  1. Combine lime juice, oil, salt, celery seeds, black pepper and hot pepper sauce in a small bowl. Place salmon in a shallow dish. Pour 1/4 cup lime juice mixture over fish; turn to coat. Refrigerate 10 minutes, turning once. Reserve remaining mixture for sauce.
  2. Prepare grill or broiler.
  3. Stir green onion, water, and honey into reserved lime juice mixture. Grease grill rack or rack of a shallow roasting pan. Place salmon on rack. Drizzle with half of lime juice mixture from marinade dish. Grill on covered grill for 2 minutes per side or until cooked through, or broil 4 minutes per side. Serve grilled salmon with green onion sauce. (I broiled my salmon and never flipped, just let it cook through, skin side down.)
