Salmon fillets on the grill may sound fancy, but it's as easy as grilling burgers (if not easier).
These thick, meaty filets pair beautifully with fresh spring produce, so replace the arugula with any bright, fresh salad you like. If you're new to grilling fish, wrap fillets in foil or place them on a well-soaked cedar plank. Use your preferred seasoning on the fish. It's up to you—there are many ways to get this right!
Grilled Salmon with Citrus Salsa
Ingredients (serves 4)
4 salmon filets, skin removed, about 150g each
Salt and pepper
Vegetable oil, for grill
4 cups fresh arugula, for serving
1/2 cup orange sections, chopped
1/2 cup lemon sections, chopped
2 tbsp finely minced shallots
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp honey
1. Combine salsa ingredients and set aside.
2. Heat the grill to medium-high, and brush the grates with vegetable oil to keep the salmon from sticking.
3. Season salmon with salt and pepper on both sides.
4. Grill salmon 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until the fish flakes easily and is cooked to medium.
5. Arrange arugula on a serving platter and place cooked salmon on top. Spoon salsa onto fish before serving.
