Grilled Greek Salmon: It’s What’s for Dinner

There’s nothing better that fresh Grilled Greek Salmon on your plate in the middle of summer.  Buttery, flaky, and tender, salmon is one of my favorite meats to grill, and when it’s seasoned just right, it’s perfection.  I’ve made a lot of different marinades and sauces, but Grilled Greek Salmon is my favorite.  Tangy and light, it’s what’s for dinner at my house in the summer.  I marinade the fish for about 30 minutes to an hour before I’m going to grill it, to get the flavor deep into the meat.  Trial and error have shown me that any longer than an hour and it turns to mush on the grill.

Seasoning Your Grilled Greek Salmon

Making a marinade for your Grilled Greek Salmon is easy.  I start with a bit of my favorite olive oil, and a splash of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar.  That sets the stage for what becomes a perfect storm of flavor.  Fresh or dried oregano brings a freshness that is paired with minced garlic for an earthiness that is incomparable.  The salmon you choose for Grilled Greek Salmon is important too.  I go for salmon that has a dark pink color and is wild caught.  I find the best is from Copper River, but it’s only available for a short time.  Look for salmon that is pink and has very little “fishy” odor.  Fresh fish really doesn’t have much of a scent.  The fish monger at your local fish counter should be able to tell you what is fresh.  Go with their recommendation, and always look for a good sale.

Leftover Grilled Greek Salmon

If you happen to have leftover Grilled Greek Salmon, (I often cook extra just to have leftovers) there are several things you can do with it.  Salmon Patties are amazing when made from leftover Grilled Greek Salmon.  Flake apart the leftovers, mix with a bit of cream cheese, diced red pepper, then coat in breadcrumbs and pan fry in some olive oil.  They will quickly become a favorite.  I also love to place leftover Grilled Greek Salmon on a fresh spinach salad, topped with a dressing made like the marinade.  It’s a perfect lunch, packed with all kinds of goodness between the oils of the salmon, iron in the spinach, and the goodies in the olive oil and cider vinegar.  And it’s easy to take to work!  So make some extra Grilled Greek Salmon and have amazing leftovers!
