Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


4 servings

After I grilled this for my boss and her husband, I was swamped with calls asking for the recipe the next day at work. And it only takes minutes to prepare.—Naomi Mahoney, Oakville, Ontario.


  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)


  1. In a small bowl, combine the oil, molasses, garlic and lemon zest; reserve half the mixture for serving.
  2. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill salmon, uncovered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the hear for 6-8 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork, basting frequently with molasses mixture. Serve with reserved molasses mixture.
