This marinade is great for grilled salmon. It works well with any cut of salmon. However, I typically use salmon fillets. I like king salmon best, but it works well on any type of fresh salmon. This marinade is enough for 3 pounds of salmon.

This recipe is OK. It's missing something. I followed the recipe for the marinade exactly and found the honey dominated the flavors. I would decrease the honey to 1-2 Tablespoons if I make it again. Also, the recipe didn't say how to handle the basil so I put all the ingredients in the food processor and mixed until well blended. I had to look this up--->one lemon juiced = 3 Tablespoons.

I don’t care for salmon and made this for my husband who loves salmon, so this is his rating of a 3. He complained the marinade overpowered the salmon, however the salmon was very moist. I marinated it for one and a half hours, so less time marinating might have worked for him.
