I was deciding how to cook the salmon fillets I bought, when I came across this good recipe.
It’s adapted from a Three Guys from Miami recipe. The marinade infuses the salmon with delicious spices. This recipe works great with about any type of fish fillet ~ any fish you like with the skin on. The skin will keep the fillets from shrinking and will keep the fish from sticking to the grill.
This is a keeper and my go-to marinade for fish!
Spicy Grilled Salmon Cuban-Style
2 (6-ounce) fillets of salmon
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon lime juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chopped parsley (or cilantro)
½ teaspoon oregano
3 green onions, sliced
1 scant teaspoon red pepper flakes
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon seasoned pepper
Place marinade ingredients in a large plastic bag and mix well.
Add salmon to mixture and marinade for up to 2 hours, no longer.
Place on hot grill, skin side up, just long enough to put grill marks on the flesh.
Flip and move to cooler side of grill, and cook on low heat until the salmon flakes with a fork.
