Grilled Salmon with Cucumber and Lime Salsa

Salmon is my favourite, and its Tony's too. Yum. We don't seem to buy it often though, as its hard to get decent, fresh salmon near us. I managed to get some for this past weekend to barbeque on our long weekend at the beach. It was delicious and I was very pleased with how I prepared it.

1 tbs fresh lime juice
1 tsp honey
1 tsp vegetable oil plus additional for brushing pan
1 tsp ground coriander
2 salmon fillets

1 lime
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, diced
1 tbs finely chopped fresh coriander
1 tbs finely chopped spring onions
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp sugar, or to taste
¼ tsp salt

First you need to marinate the salmon. Stir together lime juice, honey, oil, and coriander in a shallow dish.

Add salmon and rub with the marinade all over and allow to sit and marinate at room temperature, turning over once, 15 minutes. (Do not marinate longer).

While salmon marinates prepare the salsa by combining all the ingredient in a bowl and set aside.

Heat up the bbq or the grill pan till hot. Remove the salmon from marinade grill the fish until just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve topped with salsa and whatever else you like.
