North African-style Grilled Salmon

North African Style Grilled Salmon

The perfect pescatarian recipe to break in the grilling season!



Reserve 2 tablespoons of the olives. Blend remaining olives, yogurt, parsley, cilantro, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, paprika, cumin, turmeric, salt, and pepper flakes; set aside. Rinse any ice glaze from frozen salmon under cold water, and pat dry with a paper towel. Preheat grill to medium-high.

Coat a heavy skillet with oil, and place on grill to preheat. Brush both sides of salmon with oil. Place salmon in heated skillet, and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes until browned. Turn salmon over, and sprinkle with lemon pepper. Cover pan tightly, and reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 6 to 8 minutes for frozen salmon; 3 to 4 minutes for fresh or thawed fish. To serve, spoon sauce over each salmon portion, and sprinkle with reserved olives and slivered onion.
