Recipe: Mediterranean-style grilled salmon

We at the Verdant Health Commission love the flavors and health benefits of the Mediterranean region. We found this recipe from the Mayo Clinic and wanted to share.

Mediterranean-style grilled salmon

Serves 4

4 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 salmon fillets, each 5 ounces
Cracked black pepper, to taste
4 green olives, chopped
4 thin slices lemon
1 cup chopped fresh spinach
2 scallions, chopped
Crushed red chili flakes (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt-free lemon pepper seasoning blend



Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or broiler. Away from the heat source, lightly coat the grill rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source.

In a small bowl, combine the basil, parsley, minced garlic and lemon juice. Spray the fish with cooking spray. Sprinkle with black pepper. Top each fillet with equal amounts of the herb-garlic mixture. Place the fish herb-side down on the grill.
