Grilled Salmon w/ Lime-Ade
Here is a simple marinade for delicious grilled salmon (adapted from Culinate).
What the heck is Lime-ade anyway?
I had to look it up, it's a frozen concentrate sort of like lemonade. If you can't find it, use Rose's Lime Juice, or fresh lime juice w/ honey instead. I used Rose's.
equal parts of:
Rose's Lime Juice or Lime-Ade
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
2 lb. Wild Salmon filet
salt & pepper
Marinate the fish for 45 minutes in a glass dish.
Sear on a hot grill, flesh side down for 2 minutes, then flip over and cook another 10 minutes.
Salmon has a tendency to stick to the grill, so I now use non stick foil to cook my fish, and the fish comes right off the grill without any effort.
Some grates, notably the stainless steel rods or wires, will transfer heat rapidly and are problematic when it comes to any type of grilling. I prefer to grill with either cast-iron or porcelain coated cast-iron grates.
I was taught this by one of the marketing folks at Alaska Seafood Marketing - using a 15lb side of Copper River Salmon - he placed it flesh side down on the hot grates and left it alone until he could use the tongs to lift it just a bit and the sear marks were releasing from the grates. Seriously - this does work!
We had steel head trout last night and it was very similar in appearance and taste to salmon. It think it should work too.
