The name says it all! The best I've ever had. One word for it - amazing. I did it in the oven, so just imagine what it would be like on the grill.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine garlic and salt and grind into a paste. Combine the garlic, parsley, dried tomatoes and olive oil in a bowl; blending all ingredients. Chill until ready for use.
  2. With a sharp knife, cut two lengthwise slits in the salmon fillet, dividing the surface of the fish into thirds. Cut to the skin, but not through it.
  3. Preheat grill.
  4. Spread half the garlic mixture over the fillet and into the slits. Place the fish on grill and barbecue over a medium heat. Close the lid and grill for 15 minutes.
  5. Spread the remaining garlic mixture on the fillet. Close the lid, turning the temperature to high and grill 10 minutes more, or until fish flakes when tested.
  6. Remove the fish from the grill.
