Yogurt-Marinated Grilled Salmon

Yogurt-Marinated Grilled Salmon

Recipe Rating: 3.58707
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.

  • 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

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.
