THIS delicious grilled salmon with citrus salsa verde is extremely tasty.
For the salsa, you will need:
l2 large oranges
l¼ cup of olive oil
l¼ cup of lemon juice
l¼ cup of chopped parsley
l2 spring onions, finely sliced
l3tbsp of chopped mint leaves
l2tbsp of chopped capers
l2tbsp of orange zest
l1tsp of lemon zest
l1tsp of crushed pepper flakes
For the salmon, you will need:
lVegetable oil for oiling the grill
l4 (4oz or 5oz) centre-cut salmon fillets
The cooking method for the salsa is to firstly peel and trim the ends from each orange. Using a paring knife, cut along the membrane on both sides of each segment. Free the segments and put them in a medium-sized bowl.
Add the olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, spring onion, mint, capers, orange zest, lemon zest and pepper flakes. Toss lightly and season to taste.
For the salmon, pre-heat a gas or charcoal grill. Brush the grilling rack with oil to stop the salmon from sticking.
Season the salmon on both sides. Grill the salmon for about three or four minutes on each side until the fish flakes easily.
Transfer to a platter and leave to rest for five minutes.
Spoon the salsa on top of the salmon and serve with a fresh rocket salad.
