Grilled Limoncello Salmon Steaks

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 12 mins

An unusual marinade for salmon steaks. Allow 3-6 hours for the steaks to marinate.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse and pat dry the salmon steaks.
  2. In a bowl large enough to contain the fish, whisk together olive oil, lemon, onion, liqueur, oregano and salt and freshly ground pepper.
  3. Turn the salmon steaks in the marinade, to coat both sides, and leave to marinate, in the refrigerator, for 3-6 hours.
  4. Remove the steaks from the marinade and cook on the bbq or grill for 10-12 minutes, turning once, until the fish is firm to the touch.
  5. Careful not to overcook.
  6. Serve immediately with a tossed green salad and oven-roasted cauliflower.

I am on the fence with this one! I used this on Spring Trout, grilled on cedar planks. The taste was just OK ...but, I didn't detect a whole lot of infusion of the Limoncello. You could have got away with lemon juice and some wine and the taste would have been the same. I would probably check out other recipes before I come back to this one. Sorry!
