Grilled Salmon With a Creamy 'tartar' Sauce

"This is a delicious, easy summer salmon dish that gives you a lot of bang for your bucks. We liked it grilled, but you could also broil it in the oven, cook it in a non-stick skillet, or even nuke it! The creamy (faux) 'tartar' sauce is absolutely yummy and really complements the rich, flaky salmon. This dish is great either hot or cold."

Ready In:




  • For Creamy Tartar Sauce: Combine all ingredients together in a small bowl. Taste and adjust for salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • For Salmon: Mix olive oil, lemon juice, dijon mustard, garlic, oregano and salt and pepper to taste. Put salmon steaks in a zip-loc bag and add marinade, making sure that salmon is completely coated with marinade. Marinate in refrigerator for 1-2 hours before grilling.
  • To grill: Prepare coals or propane bbq to medium-hot. Remove salmon from marinade in zip-loc bag and grill 3-4 minutes per side, or until done. (Alternatively, you can cook the salmon in your favourite way.).
  • To serve: Center grilled salmon on plate and top with creamy 'tartar' sauce. Garnish with the very finely-sliced green onion tops sprinkled over the sauce.

    I really enjoyed the sauce for the salmon. The salmon was easy to make(I cooked in a skillet). Thanks!

    I really love the taste of the grilled salmon, but found that it got a bit dry. I found that the tartar sauce went very well with the fish.

    We grilled this and it was very good. A very light but yet fancy summer evening dinner. The descriptions are easy to follow and the ingrediants are very nicely combined. I will use the fake tartar more often with other types of fish or even as a dip. Next time i will though not use the garlic and use basil instead og oregano, that is the only reason i gave 4 instead of five stars. Good luck in the contest! Made for RSC#14


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
