Every great barbecue needs a great seafood option… and COAST’s Chef de Cuisine, Pedro Gonzalez, has created a grilled salmon dish fit for royalty.
It’s not only a beautiful looking dish with vibrant colors and textures – but it tastes absolutely amazing too!
Give Chef Pedro’s recipe a try and be flooded with compliments at your next barbecue.
Grilled Sockeye Salmon – topped with a melted heirloom tomato and basil relish
For the Relish
12 baby heirloom tomatoes, sliced in half
1 tsp minced garlic
2 tbsp garlic oil
8 leaves basil, torn
Cracked black pepper to taste
Salt to taste
Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper. Roast in an oven or broiler until it has caramelized on top and set aside.
For the Salmon
7 oz portion fresh sockeye salmon
Season the fish on all sides, using olive oil, salt & pepper to taste. Grill the fish until rare – approximately 5-7 minutes depending on thickness of portion.
Add the tomato relish to the top of the fish as it finishes cooking on the grill. This allows the tomato relish to melt into the crevices of the fish.
Plate, serve & enjoy!
