4 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

1 tablespoon minced garlic

2 tablespoon lemon juice

4 salmon fillets, each 5 ounces

Cracked black pepper, to taste

4 green olives, chopped

4 thin slices lemon



Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or broiler.  Away from the heat source, lightly coat the grill rack or broiler pan with cooking spray.  Position the cooking rack 4-6 inches from the heat source.  In a small bowl, combine the basil, parsley, minced garlic and lemon juice.  Spray the fish with cooking spray.  Sprinkle with black pepper. Top each fillet with equal amounts of the basil-garlic mixture.  Place the fish herb side down on the grill.  Grill over high heat. Then the edges turn white, after about 3-4 minutes, turn fish over and place on aluminum foil.  Move the fish to a cooler part of the grill or reduce the heat. Grill until the fish is opaque throughout when tested with the tip of a knife. An instant read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the fish reads 145 F (about 4 minutes longer).  Remove the salmon and place on warmed plate with green olives and lemon slices.
