Grilled Salmon With Basil Aioli

Grilled Salmon With Basil Aioli created by CaliforniaJan

DH and I enjoyed this easy to prepare salmon dish from July 2008 Bon Appetit. We cheated and used anchovy paste instead of opening up a new tin of anchovies. It worked fine. We served the fish with grilled summer squash and zucchini, which was very complimentary.

  • For the basil aioli: Whisk egg yolks, basil, garlic, anchovies, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce in medium bowl.

Cover and chill. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Keep chilled).
  • For Salmon: Prepare a BBQ (high heat). Brush grill rack with oil. Brush salmon with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill salmon, uncovered, 5 minutes. Using 2 large spatulas, carefully turn fish over. Grill until fish just begins to flake in center, 4 to 5 minutes longer. Transfer salmon to platter. Serve with aioli.

    Made for ZWT #7 and my team, Witchin Kitchen. This is a very nice way to serve salmon. I agree that there needs to be lots of Tabasco in the sauce. Also, since the sauce is rich and it makes quite a bit, I'd halve it next time. Thanks for posting.
