Knock knock! Anyone’s here? I feel like a stranger in my own food blog. Haha Roadblocks suddenly came tumbling into my life which takes cooking out of the questions. No worry. I know I will overcome them. So meanwhile here’s a simple salmon dish I made weeks back by adapting to JO’s recipe.
I’m a huge lover of salmon. BUT sometimes the salmon smell can make me sick. So salmon is a once in a blue moon thingy. This slab is too thick. Choose a thinner meat for grilling. Because the longer you cook, the dryer the fish become.
Rub salmon with oil and season it well. Then place the fish skin side up on the hot grill which has been wiped with oil. Grill 2-4 minutes and then turn the other side and cook 3-5 minutes covered or to the doneness you prefer.
Simple Grilled Salmon with Dill Yogurt
Adapted from Jamie Oliver
1 small/medium size salmon
150g fat free natural yogurt
1 bunch dill, chopped
1 teaspoon lemon juice (adjust to your taste)
zest of 1/2 lemon
1. Heat grill. Pour oil on a piece of cloth and wipe the grill.
2. Gently rub little oil all over the salmon and season with salt and pepper.
3. Grill salmon skin side up for 2-4 minutes. Reason is because salmon can get flaky once cooked, so we cook the skin down last.
4. Turn salmon over and cook for 3-5 minutes covered. If the grill is too hot, move the fish to cooler side. Once done, place a good dollop of dill yogurt on the salmon and serve.
To make dill yogurt: Mix yogurt and chopped dill with zest of 1/2 lemon and lemon juice. Mix well.
