Total Time






  • 1 pkg. (12 oz.) Orca Bay Sockeye Fillets
  • Salt, to taste
  • Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter


Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Sprinkle the sockeye salmon with salt and pepper. Pour the oil in a flat dish and add the garlic, lemon juice, lemon rind, pepper flakes, and about 3/4 of the chopped thyme. Place the fillets in the marinade and coat well. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand in a cool place for 15 minutes. Remove salmon from the marinade and place directly on the grill and cook, approximately 5 minutes per side. Remove the salmon from the grill. Combine the melted butter with the remaining thyme and drizzle over fillets.
