A really simple but tasty recipe, originally from here http://www.thegalleygourmet.net/2011/08/grilled-salmon-with-lime-butter-sauce.htmlFor the salmon:
For the sauce:
- 4-6 salmon fillets
- Zest from half a lime
- Extra-virgin olive oil (optional)
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Rocket to serve
- 1 large garlic clove
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
Brush salmon with oil (optional). Cook salmon in the oven on a tray lined with baking paper for 15 or so minutes at 180 degrees. Or cook on the stove top in a pan if you prefer.
Make the sauce:
Peel a garlic clove and add to TMX bowl;. Chop for a few seconds on sp 6. Scrape down sides.
Add lime juice and pepper and combine well on sp 5 for 10 seconds.
Melt the butter (microwave or stovetop)
Invert the MC, set the blades spinning on sp 4 and drizzle the melted butter onto the lid. It should take about 30 seconds to incorporate all the butter.
Zest the lime.
Serve salmon fillets on a bed of rocket, sprinkle on the zest and spoon over the sauce.
Any leftover sauce can go into the fridge and just needs warming before serving. Members' comments
Obbie - Yum, yum. So easy and fast too. Thanks.
sue purrb - I steamed salmon and vegies in the varoma, with potatoes in the basket. The sauce was very quick to make, but I think next time I would sauté the garlic first as I found the raw garlic to be very strong. On the plus side, we should be safe from vampires tonight!
ES - I saw that this had been bumped, so I made it tonight as well. I cooked the salmon on the BBQ, and served it with bbq'd mushrooms and salad. The sauce was quite thin and not really popular with my family. I thought it was nice and tangy, but I probably won't make it again. I have half of the sauce left over, so I've frozen it for another day.
