Recipe by HeatherFeather
I tasted this at one of the taste-test booths in Costco when I lived in California. They were promoting their frozen salmon fillets - which are the only frozen fish I have even tasted that I enjoyed (thaw first). This is a really simple, yet tasty recipe for nights when you are too lazy or tired to do much else. You may certainly use fresh salmon, which is what I usually do. The type of salmon fillets you want are the ones cut from the side of the fish into thick strips (as opposed to the horseshoe-shaped type).
- 1⁄4 cup lemon-pepper seasoning, blend to taste
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 -3 fresh garlic cloves, crushed
- 7 (6 ounce) salmon fillets, deboned, skinless
- 1 -2 lemon, cut into wedges
- fresh parsley, to garnish (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Make a paste of the lemon pepper salt, olive oil, and garlic.
- Rub some of the paste onto each salmon piece, as much or as little as you prefer to taste.
- Cover and chill 20 minutes (don't let sit too long or the salt will start to cook the fish).
- Grill (medium heat) or broil (high) until salmon is cooked through to your liking- it should be just starting to flake and it should look like milk is starting to seep out of the fish.
- The time will vary,especially if you use an outdoor grill, but roughly 7-12 minutes or so is a good guess.
- Garnish with a bit of fresh parsley and serve with lemon wedges on the side to squirt on each piece as desired.
