salmon-1312372_1920It’s pink and globally recognized as delicious. We’re talking about salmon today. We’re going to show you how to easily prepare it on the grill and pair it with a savory cucumber dill sauce that complements the fish extremely well. You’ll soon be thanking Lombardi’s for providing you the best seafood in Orlando because of this recipe alone.

This recipe makes four, four-ounce portions of fish. If you’re so inclined, you can easily double it for more guests or for those with a bit larger appetites. Either way, it’s quite simple to make. The following are the ingredients you’ll use for your grilled salmon and the ones you’ll use for the cucumber dill sauce.

Ingredients for Fish:

  • 1 pound fresh salmon
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper, ground

Ingredients for Sauce:

  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup olive oil mayonnaise
  • ½ English cucumber, diced
  • ¼ cup blue cheese dressing (optional)
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Kosher salt

Steps:

 

  • Prepare your sauce by simply combining all ingredients together in a bowl. You may omit the blue cheese dressing if you’d like. Refrigerate the sauce until you are ready to use it.
  • Set the grill to high heat.
  • Rinse the salmon, and pat it dry to remove any moisture. Ensure there are no bones in your fish by picking them out prior to cooking.
  • Coat the meat side of the fish with some olive oil, and then, add as much salt and black pepper as your heart desires.
  • Cook the fish meat side down for three to four minutes, then flip it and cook for another two to three minutes.
  • Plate the fish as desired, with or without the skin, and serve alongside with a lemon and the cucumber dill sauce you just prepared.
