Salmon Grilled To Perfection

I found this recipe on the target web site. I like salmon prepared simple, because i just really like the flavor of the salmon its self .. Salmon is one of the very few fish i like or will eat.. Love halibut and also sole. surprisingly i really like a well prepared salmon steak as long as the skins very crispy. This recipe is really meant for salmon steaks, but I could only find the filets.The lemon juice eliminates  some of the natural fishy taste of salmon, and the vegetable oil made  the edges of the fish slightly crispy. This is just the way i like salmon on top of spinach !
Tip: A superior extra-virgin olive oil should be used as a sauce or finishing oil, and never as cooking oil. 


  • 1/3 cup good-quality extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • Four 8-ounce salmon steaks (or substitute halibut steaks or swordfish steaks)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 lemon, quartered


Prepare barbecue and set at a medium-high heat. Mix the olive oil, lemon juice, and oregano in a small bowl. Set olive oil-herb mixture aside.
Rub the salmon steaks lightly with the vegetable oil and garlic. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill until steaks are opaque in center, about 5 minutes per side.
TO SERVE: Place steaks on plates. Drizzle the olive oil-herb mixture over steaks. Garnish with lemon wedges and serve.
