Lemon Basil Salmon


  • 1 1/2 lbs salmon fillets (or you can use Chicken)
  • 4 Tbsp ghee, melted
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 handful basil, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 6 lemon slices


  1. In a medium-sized bowl combine butter, garlic, basil, juice, salt and pepper. Mix with a spoon until combined.
  2. If grilling immediately! Pour half of the lemon-basil sauce over salmon fillets. Reserve the remaining sauce for later. Top each fillet with one lemon slice.
  3. If making ahead combine all ingredients into a ziploc bag to marinate overnight, then grill.

  5. Close aluminum foil around salmon to make a packet. Bake salmon for 15 minutes without undoing the foil packet.
