DIRECTIONS

  • Mix first 10 ingredients in bowl.
  • Pour marinade into large freezer bag.
  • Marinate fish at least 20 minutes with bag sealed at room temperature.
  • Thinly slice the tomato and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Place fish on hot grill. Add salt and pepper to taste. (Fresh ground is preferred).
  • As the fish cooks (3-5 minutes per side), use a brush and mop the marinade onto fish.
  • Turn salmon a quarter (90 degrees) after a quarter of the way through cooking. (This will give it nice grill cross hatch marks).
  • Flip fish half way though cooking. Add salt and pepper to taste to this side as well.
  • Continue to baste the fish with marinade. (Try to use all if possible).
  • Turn fish another 90 degrees after 3/4 done cooking.
  • Before fish is completely cooked, top it with thinly sliced tomato. Top tomato with fresh basil. Top basil with crumbled goat cheese. Shut the grill for a minute or two before taking fish off. Let rest a few minutes and enjoy!
  • Feel free to make the marinade to taste. It should be sweet, and salty, and sour. I did not measure anything out when making this dish. I simply tasted it a few times until it was balanced the way I liked it.
