  • How To Cook Barbeque Salmon Steaks

    Using a blender, combine the lime juice, olive oil, mustard, fresh ginger, minced garlic, cayenne pepper, and black pepper.

    Place the salmon steaks and marinade in a large resealable plastic bag. Turn to coat, squeeze out the air, seal the bag, and refrigerate. Allow to marinate at least 1/ 1/2 hours.

    Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes prior to grilling to bring the fish to room temperature. A warm piece of meat will sear better than a cold one and create a nicer crust.

    Before cooking salmon steaks clean, lightly oil, and preheat your outdoor grill for medium heat (300 - 400 degrees F). If you're using charcoal, the grill is ready when you can hold the palm of your hand two inches above the grate for only 4 -5 seconds before pulling away.

    Grill each side of your salmon steaks 4 - 5 minutes directly over the flames or coals (direct heat). Brush each side once with leftover marinade. Total cooking time should be 8 - 10 minutes.

    Grilling Tip: Halfway through grilling each side, give your salmon steak a 90 degree turn in order to make criss-cross pattern grill marks. The increase in seared surface area enhances the flavor of grilled meats.

    The steaks are done when they flake easily with a fork. Serve warm with a dash of lime juice for more kick.
