I read with interest this recent recipe idea of Anna's. It looked so good, a quick and easy dish to prepare, that I thought it worth sharing. Here is what she says.
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Total time: 20 mins
1-2 pounds of wild caught salmon filets
Salt and pepper
¼ cup olive oil plus more for oiling the salmon skin
¼ cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon minced lemon zest
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
7-8 basil leaves, chopped
1 clove minced garlic
Light grill or preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Clean side of salmon, making sure any stray scales or pin bones are removed. Oil the skin, and lay on foil lined baking sheet, pink side up. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
In a food processor (or Vitamix), pulse olive oil, lemon juice, zest, mustard, basil leaves and garlic. Pour evenly over salmon so it’s coated thickly.
Grill, skin side down, about 15 minutes, until desired done-ness. Or bake in oven at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes until desired done-ness."
