With the success of the Tuna steaks and after receiving two thumbs up from the family, I decided to stick with fish and grill one of my favorites, Salmon. I’m determined to be thinner this summer and to eat healthier so over the next few weeks I’m going to be barbecuing all kinds of fish in the hope I will add some new ones to my favorite list. Yesterday, I knew time was not going to be on my side later in the day so I made a quick and simple marinade in the morning.
Simple Barbecued Salmon:
1/3 cup sesame oil
1/4 cup of soy sauce
1/4 cup of rice vinegar
1/4 cup of sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 garlic cloves, minced
4 8 ounce Salmon steaks
Marinade: In a small bowl combine the oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, garlic and lemon juice, then whisk for 1 minute. Add the marinade to the Salmon steaks in a ziplock bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Grilling: When I’m grilling fish on the barbecue I usually grill them on top of aluminum foil. However, salmon steaks have a great, thick skin so in this case I add them directly to the barbecue. When you do that though, make sure the grill is on a low to medium flame. Add the marinade to both sides whilst you grill. I let the salmon grill “skin down” for about 8 minutes and then finish off the other side for 2 minutes.
The fish came out juicy and flavorful! We added the Salmon steaks to some rice and included a fresh, crisp Greek salad as a side.
