Paleo Grilled Salmon

  • Author: Holley -
  • Yield: 2 lb salmon 1x


This Paleo grilled salmon is an easy go-to for dinner in a rush. Throw it on the BBQ when it’s too stinking hot to cook indoors. Versatile and easy, can be served atop a salad, (Caesar is my fave) or with veggies and ranch! You can also put it atop some zucchini noodles for a pasta substitute!


  • 2 lbs fresh or frozen wild salmon
  • 2 tsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tsp butter or ghee
  • 1 lemon cut into slices
  • salt and pepper


  1. Place a length of tinfoil down, place salmon skin side down in the center.
  2. Lightly massage the butter onto the salmon skin.
  3. Sprinkle fresh dill overtop
  4. Place thinly sliced lemon overtop of the dill, (I put a couple underneath the skin as well so the skin doesn’t stick to the tinfoil).
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper
  6. Pull the sides of the tinfoil up to make a tent, and roll the ends to keep the steam in.
  7. Fire up the grill, and grill on medium heat for 10 min per pound, a little longer for especially thick salmon steaks.


Be careful not to cook salmon for too long or too hot, you want it opaque but not dried out!
