Directions

The sauce
1.
 Combine the yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, fresh cilantro, salt and pepper.

2. Taste the sauce and season or rectify the flavors as you wish. More lemon, more cilantro, more pepper… Adjust until you want to eat it by the spoonful!

The salmon steak
1. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium fire. Brush salmon steaks on both sides with oil; sprinkle with coarse salt and black pepper. You can remove the skin if you don’t want it.

2. Grill salmon until golden and just cooked in center, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to plates and drizzle with lemon juice. Spoon the cilantro sauce over salmon steaks and sprinkle with pepper flakes or additional seasoning, if necessary. Serve immediately with lime wedges alongside.
