I have been trying all sorts of recipes for grilled fish this summer.The trick seems to be not to dry out the fish and have a quick and tasty sauce with a bright flavor —kitchengardener

What You'll Need
  • 1 1/2 pounds wild salmon filet
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs-basil, mint, oregano, marjoram
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika or pimenton
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  1. Preheat the grill and season it with oil or olive oil spray
  2. check the salmon for pin bones (you can pull them out with pliers)rub it with olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of pimenton and sea salt
  3. meanwhile, chop the fresh herbs, mix the remainder of the pimenton with 3 tbs olive oil and sherry vinegar, herbs, and another pinch of sea salt
  4. grill the salmon skin side down until just cooked through
  5. remove from the grill and serve with the sauce to pour over the fish
