{Katie’s Kitchen} Joanna Gaines’ Grilled Salmon (with Meyer Lemons)

Brought to you by the Kitchenette

I am a huge fan of the Gaines’ family and was so excited to purchase the Magnolia Table Cookbook when it came out! This is the first recipe that I’ve tried…Grilled Salmon with Meyer Lemons (except I didn’t use Meyer Lemons). How delicious and perfect for the summer.

I used a 1lb 1/2 of salmon with the skin on. Joanna’s recipe calls for 4 6oz. fillets.

First, you’re going to brush the skin with extra virgin olive oil. Then, prep your marinade. In a shallow dish with a flat bottom, add ½ cup oil, 1 Tbsp lemon zest, juice of 2 lemons, 1 Tbsp dill and 1 Tbsp salt. Add your fillets skin side up. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour.

Pre-heat your grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grill grate.

After an hour in the refrigerator, take out your salmon and place the fillets skin side down on the grill. Brush fillets with marinade. Cover and cook without flipping 10-12 minutes or until they’re done to you liking (mine did take about 5 minutes longer). Thinly slice 1-2 lemons; brush both sides with oil. Grill 1-2 minutes per side.

Top your fillets with your grilled lemons and sprinkle fresh chives!
