This is a recipe I just came up with because I fancied something along these lines and couldn't find any existing recipes that appealed. It came out well and I think the lemon in the sauce gives a good contrast to the richness of salmon.
- 1 salmon steak
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 lemon, cut in half
- 70 g plain yogurt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 minced garlic clove
- 1⁄8 teaspoon paprika
- 6 coriander leaves
- 3 sprigs parsley
- Place salmon cutlet on low to medium temperature BBQ plate.
- Squeeze one lemon half over cutlet.
- Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper.
- Cook around seven minutes on one side, flip over and cook around another seven minutes but turn off BBQ plate after a few minutes.
- Meanwhile prepare the sauce in a small bowl by adding yoghurt, cumin, garlic and squeezed juice of other lemon half and mix well.
- Once the dish is cooked plate up and pour over the sauce.
- Add a sprinkling of paprika to garnish and place the coriander and parsley on top.
- Serve with a light salad such as mesclun, olives, tomato, mushrooms and grilled zucchini.
We really enjoyed this yogurt sauce, I made some less than wonderful salmon taste quite yummy. It is a nice sauce to make your salmon a "classy" meal.
Fantasic salmon recipe Peter! I made it exactly as posted and served it with a salad of baby greens for a nice light dinner. Thanks for a great meal! Made for Aussie Swap :)
I enjoyed this for dinner tonight. I served it with rice and a salad. I didn't have parsley so used extra cilantro. Thanks Peter!
