Recipe by JanuaryBride

Recipe found on www.eatingwell.com. This is a version of the classic North African herb paste known as chermoula serves as both a marinade and a sauce for this richly flavored salmon. If it is too cool to grill outdoors, you can roast the salmon at 450 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes.

This is great! I left the fish to marinate for about an hour and a half while at yoga and then cooked it in the oven... I love salmon and this is a keeper! Made it with a salmon steak. For ZWT #6!
