Grilled Salmon fillet photoPhoto credit: © Eatwell101.comIn foil, fried or baked, there are a thousand ways to enjoy salmon! To change a little bit and because the season is up right for outdoor activities, I did it on the barbecue grill and I accompanied it with a creamy sauce with mint and basil. Simple and delicious!

Ingredients list for grilled salmon with mint and basil sauce

Serves 4 :

  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1 oz (25g) fresh basil leaves
  • 1 oz (25g) of mint leaves
  • 7 oz (200ml) olive oil
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons cream
  • Finely grated zest and juice of one lemon
  • Oil
  • Salt
  • Ground pepper

Cooking instructions

1. Boil a pot of water and add the mint leaves and basil to infuse for 15 seconds. Remove and drain.
2. Remove excess water on the leaves with a dish towel. Put the mint leaves and basil with olive oil in a blender and mix well. Marinate for 15 minutes.
3. In a bowl, put the egg yolk, mustard and necessary seasoning. Whisk until you get a smooth sauce.
4. Stir the mint and basil-flavored olive oil into this mixture gradually until the preparation gets thick and creamy, like a mayonnaise. Beat well with the lemon zest, lemon juice and cream. Place this sauce in the refrigerator.
5. Brush salmon fillets with oil. Cook on the barbecue at medium heat for 4 minutes on each side.
6. Serve warm with cream, basil and mint.
