Grilled Rosemary Salmon

Grilled Rosemary Salmon

Ingredients

  • 2 salmon fillets or steaks (3/4 lb each)
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon rosemary
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • Additional 2-3 sprigs fresh rosemary for the grill

Directions

  1. Whisk together orange juice and olive oil and set aside.
  2. Prepare a dry paste, from the rosemary, garlic and salt. Rub paste on salmon, then place salmon in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour the orange juice and oil mixture over salmon.
  3. Seal the bag, carefully pressing out any extra air. Refrigerate for 2 hours, turning 3 or 4 times to redistribute the marinade. When ready to cook, preheat gas or charcoal grill to a very hot temperature.
  4. Add fresh rosemary to the coals or grill irons just before placing salmon on the grill.
  5. Grill salmon 5-10 minutes, until meat starts to flake.
  6. Turn salmon and grill another 5 minutes on the second side until meat flakes.
