  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish
  • Lime wedges for serving


  1. Start by preparing the marinade. In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, fresh lime juice, minced garlic, chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  2. Place the salmon fillets in a resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag and gently massage the marinade into the salmon. Let it marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Brush the grill grates with oil to prevent sticking.
  4. Remove the salmon from the marinade and shake off any excess. Place the fillets on the grill, skin side down. Grill for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork.
  5. Once grilled to perfection, remove the salmon from the grill and garnish with chopped cilantro.
  6. Serve the Chili Lime Grilled Salmon with lime wedges on the side, adding an extra burst of citrusy flavor before enjoying.
