Grilled Lime Salmon

  • Yield 4 servings

This is a beautiful presentation of a delicious meal.


4 -- fresh salmon steaks, 1 inch thick
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons honey
4 cups shredded mixed greens
1/2 cup shredded radishes
1/2 cup alfalfa sprouts
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seed
1 -- canned green chili pepper, rinsed, seeded and chopped
-- Lime slices


  1. Place salmon in a plastic bag; set in a shallow pan.  For marinade, stir together vegetable oil, lime juice, water, soy sauce, sesame oil, and honey; pour over salmon.  Close bag; marinate in refrigerator for 6 hours, turning bag occasionally to distribute marinade.
  2. In large bowl, toss together remaining ingredients.  Place on serving platter.  Drain salmon, reserving marinade.  Grill on an uncovered grill, directly over medium-hot coals for 8 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning halfway through grilling.  Pour reserved marinade into a small saucepan.  Place saucepan on side of grill; heat until bubbly.  Pour hot marinade over greens; toss to wilt slightly.  Serve grilled salmon on bed of greens.  Garnish with lime slices.
