    The classic way of preparing Mediterranean style fish is to baste it with spices and a little oil and vinegar and quickly grill it. Delicious!

    2. Preheat the grill.
    3. Place the salmon about 15cm from the heat source and grill for 15 minutes, turning once until browned on both sides and easily flaked with a fork. Brush occasionally with the sauce from the pan.

    Looking for a new way to make salmon, and this one turned out well. I omitted cilantro because I do not like it, but added a bit of rosemary and thyme in its place. Friend suggested adding a bit of diced tomato and chopped ripe olives to mixture - which I will do the next time I make this. Served with rice pilaf and steamed spinach for a quick and easy "healthy" dinner. Thanks, Ariel101.  -  22 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    We spread about 2 T minced garlic over the salmon, brushed with olive oil and balsamic (not the whole amount) and covered with chopped fresh basil. We baked without turning instead of broiling. It couldn't have been better.  -  10 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a good, simple recipe for salmon. The salmon flavor really comes through, and is not hidden by the other ingredients. I cut both the olive oil and vinegar in half, and it was more than enough to cover my 1 pound-plus salmon filet. You don't need that much oil/vinegar. I also only used 3 garlic cloves, because I was serving something else garlicky. I didn't have any cilantro, so I tripled the basil. And finally, I only sprinkled on a little garlic salt, it would have been way too salty with all of it. Went well with Calabrese Style Spaghetti (from this site) and fresh corn on the cob.  -  31 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
