Yogurt-Marinated Grilled Salmon

Yogurt-Marinated Grilled Salmon

Serves 4

Marinating salmon in yogurt and then cooking it on a covered grill produces tandoori-style salmon with a delightfully silky texture. We recommend marinating overnight to really allow the yogurt and Sriracha to penetrate the fish, but one or more hours will do if you're pressed for time.

Ingredients: 
  • 1 cup low fat plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • 4 (6-ounce) pieces boneless, skinless salmon fillet
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • Oil for the grill

Method: 

Whisk yogurt and Sriracha together in a large bowl. Add salmon and turn to coat; cover the bowl. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

Prepare a grill for medium-high heat cooking. Remove salmon pieces from Sriracha-yogurt mixture and discard excess marinade. Arrange salmon on the grill grates or in a fish basket and cover grill. Cook salmon for 4 minutes, then gently turn and continue grilling until salmon is cooked through, about 4 more minutes. Alternatively, bake the salmon on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet at 425°F until cooked through.

Transfer salmon to plates or a platter. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve with lime wedges.
