Salmon with Sea Salt Crust

Category: food

Are you in need of some extra Omega-3? Look no further than a fresh fillet of salmon. Full of good fats and lean protein, from your skin to your abs, your body will thank you. Learn how to take your fish dish to another level by grilling it on a bed of coarse sea salt and topping it off with a delicious, zesty sauce. 


1 - For the sauce: Stir together the parsley, lemon juice, and olive oil in a small mixing bowl. Cover and chill until needed. 
2 - For the fish: Preheat a barbecue to a moderately hot temperature. 
3 - Once preheated, place the cedar plank on the barbecue. 
4 - Once the board starts to smoke and crackle, arrange four beds of coarse sea salt on the board, spreading them out and flattening.
5 - Sit the salmon fillets on top of the salt and cover with more salt. Drizzle with olive oil and season with some freshly ground black pepper. 
6 - Cover loosely with foil and grill the salmon until firm to the touch and is easily flaked with a fork, about 15-20 minutes. 
7 - Remove from the grill and brush any excess salt off the fillets. Spoon over the herb sauce before serving.
