INSTRUCTIONS

UTENSILS/TOOLS FOR SUMMER SALMON

  • A grill
  •  A small mixing bowl
  • Plates

DIRECTIONS

The first step before preparing the food is to prepare the grill. In order to cook the perfect grilled crispy-skinned salmon, the grill needs to be on medium heat. Depending on your grill this can mean a few different things. Make sure to check out the settings or pick up a bag of charcoal before setting up the prepping station. The salmon fillets will also need to be prepared before cooking. Take 2 of the 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and rub the oil into the salmon. Season each side of all the fillets with kosher salt.

Take the small lemon and cut each of the ends off. Place the lemon on one of the flat sides; cut the lemon in four sections. The core should be left in the middle in the shape of a square. Chop up the four sections, chopping up even the skin, making sure it is finely chopped. Pace this into the small mixing bowl. Add the honey, shallot, ⅓ cup of extra virgin olive oil, sesame seeds, and sesame oil into the bowl as well. Season the mixture with kosher salt and a decent amount of freshly ground black pepper. Make sure it is mixed together well, you do not want any clumps of seasoning.

The grate on the grill needs to be cleaned before use. Once you clean the grate, oil it. The most important part is that you place the salmon on the grill with the skin side down right after oiling it. Cover the grill once the salmon is placed on it and do not flip the fillets. They should cook for about 6 to 8 minutes; making sure the skin is slightly charred. Always check that the fish is opaque before taking it off of the grill.

Place the salmon fillets on a plate and let them cool a little. Plate the fillets individually and spoon the lemon-sesame sauce over each one. Serve on a bed of brown rice or even quinoa for a protein packed meal.
