Today’s exotic grilling recipe combines North Africa’s distinct cuisine with the piscean jewel in Alaska’s oceanic crown. It turns a whole spice cabinet loose to give wild Salmon a Moroccan accent, to deliciously healthful effect.

The spices in this recipe are a who’s who of antioxidant powerhouses, from cilantro and parsley
both of which beat any fruit or vegetable, hands down, in that departmentto the four colorful, piquant curry spices, each a free radical fighter par excellence, and packed with proven health-enhancing powers.


Grilled Alaska Salmon Sahara Style

Serves 4

1 can (4 oz) sliced ripe olives, drained
3/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons organic paprika
1 teaspoon organic ground cumin
1 teaspoon organic turmeric
1/2 teaspoon kosher sea salt
1/4 teaspoon organic cayenne pepper
4 wild Alaska Salmon fillets (6 oz each), thawed
1
1/2 Tablespoons organic extra virgin olive or macadamia nut oil
1 teaspoon organic lemon-pepper seasoning
2 tablespoons slivered red onion

  • Reserve 2 tablespoons olives. Blend remaining olives, yogurt, parsley, cilantro, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, paprika, cumin, turmeric, salt, and pepper flakes; set aside.
  • Heat a grill medium-high. Brush both sides of salmon with oil. Place salmon on oiled grate and cook, uncovered, about 3‒4 minutes. Slide spatula under fish occasionally to keep from sticking.
  • Turn salmon over and sprinkle with lemon pepper. Cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes, just until fish is nearly opaque in center. Remove from grill and let it sit, covered, for 2‒3 minutes to continue cooking internally.
  • To serve, spoon a dollop of sauce over each salmon portion; sprinkle on reserved olives and slivered onion.
