Salmon with Herb CrustSubmitted by: CHULISXIMA
12 ounces fresh or frozen salmon fillets, 3/4 inch tick
1/3 cup chopped fresh oregano
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup sliced green onions (2)
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Cherry tomatoes, halved (optional)
Fresh oregano sprigs (optional)
2. In the bowl of a food processor or a mini-chopper combine oregano, cilantro, green onions, garlic, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper. Cover and process until evenly chopped (or, use a knife to finely chop oregano, cilantro, green onion, and garlic). Transfer herb mixture to a shallow bowl. Stir in lemon juice, oil, salt, and pepper. Generously coat top of salmon with the herb mixture.
3. For a charcoal grill, grill fish, skin side down, on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 6 to 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork (for a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place fish on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above).
To serve, cut each salmon piece into 2 serving-size pieces.
Number of Servings: 4
