Grilled Salmon with Lavender and Fresh Basil Marinade

Summer is for definitely the time for outside grilling. And, in our opinions, just another excuse for experimenting with lavender in everyday cooking!


  1. Four fresh salmon steaks or fillets
  2. For the marinade:
  3. -1 teaspoon dried lavender florets 
    -5 large fresh basil leaves, chopped 
    -2 Tablespoons soy sauce 
    -2 Tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
    -1/3 cup olive oil
Combine all the ingredients for the marinade and place by the grill ready to use to baste the salmon while cooking. Remember that salmon cooks fast...approximately 3-5 minutes per ½ inch of thickness. Place salmon on a hot, lightly oiled grill, skin side down. Baste frequently. When salmon is done, pour remaining marinade over fish. Nice served over wild rice. Garnish with fresh lavender.
