Lemon Thyme Grilled Salmon

- 1 Tbsp Fresh thyme leaves, minced
- 3-4 Medium garlic cloves, finely minced
- 1 lbs. Salmon
- 1 tsp Avocado oil

Zest the outside of 1 lemon into a medium-sized bowl. Add thyme and garlic to bowl and mix with lemon zest. Set aside
Brush 1 teaspoon of oil over salmon. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spread garlic mixture over fish.
Slice one of the lemons into 1/4 inch thick slices. Place salmon (skin side down) and lemon slices on the grill, medium heat. Wait 5 minutes, and place grilled lemon slices on top of fish. You do not have to flip fish.

Plate fish, garnish with a sprig of thyme and enjoy!
