Salmon is a great food to experiment
with when you are changing your diet from a weight-gaining plan
to a weight loss plan. Salmon is high in fish oils that prevent
heart disease and we think of it as a real treat, too. Even non-fish
lovers will enjoy this tasty recipe.
Whenever possible, purchase
the salmon fillets, rather than the steaks that look like a horseshoe.
Fillets seem to have no bones at all and the "skin side"
is a natural protector for cooking on the grill and keeping the
fillet in one piece
Preheat the grill. Use a garlic
press to mince a large clove of garlic and spread the resulting
garlic paste on the pink side of the fillet. Dab a few little
bits of butter around the garlic, no more than a teaspoon total.
Sprinkle parsley lightly over the fillet.
About 15 minutes before the
rest of your meal is finished cooking, place the fillet, silver,
skin side down, on the grill. Set the grill on low heat. After
about 10 minutes the bottom should have that lighter pink, cooked
look. The silver skin is now most likely stuck to the grill. With
a spatula, gently lift the pink fillet up away from the skin and
turn over so that the garlic is now cooking between the skin and
the darker uncooked fish. Shortly all the fish will be light pink
and flaky. Ready to eat...
