Olen's Grilled Salmon

Olen's Grilled Salmon Recipe

Olen and his siblings, Kayaani and Rawl, help prepare this dish by picking the herbs from their garden, and taste-testing the marinade to make sure it has enough garlic! Angie says she could eat this grilled salmon on top of a pile of wilted greens every day for the rest of her life. Olen agrees, minus the greens!

Prep time: 45 min
Cook time: 10 min
Total time: 55 min
Serves: 4


Ingredients

  • 2 pounds salmon, cut into pieces
  • 10 cloves (at least!) garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup basil, chopped
  • dash of red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup light red wine
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard

Directions

MAKE MARINADE

Mix garlic, basil, red pepper flakes, olive oil, red wine, balsamic, mustard, salt, and pepper in bowl. Adjust to your liking–it should taste like a dipping oil you want to run a slab of bread through!

MARINATE FISH

Place salmon pieces into marinade. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes and up to 8 hours.

GRILL

Place salmon pieces skin-side down on hot grill. Grill until skin is crispy and fish is cooked halfway through (flesh will turn opaque, about 3-5 minutes). Flip and cook until you have nice grill marks (about 2-5 more minutes) While flesh-side down, remove skin and drizzle remaining marinade over fish. Flip one more time to sear under the skin (about 1 more minute).

SERVE

Serve on top of wilted greens or with sides of your choosing.
