  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  2. Place the salmon fillets in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag or cover the dish, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grates to prevent sticking.
  4. Remove the salmon from the marinade and grill for about 4-5 minutes per side or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork and has a beautiful char.
  5. Serve your zesty citrus-marinated grilled salmon hot, garnished with fresh lemon and orange slices.
