    A wonderful mint and parsley marinade or coating for salmon. You can also fry it in a frying pan if you don't have a barbecue.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 bunch fresh mint, stems removed
    • 1 bunch continental parsley, stems removed
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) fresh lemon juice
    • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 4 teaspoons sea salt
    • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 4 salmon fillets
    • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

    • 4 small mint sprigs for garnish

    1. Preheat a barbecue for medium-high heat. Place the rack 12cm from the heat source.
    2. In a blender or food processor combine the mint and parsley with the lemon juice, garlic, honey, olive oil, salt and pepper. Blend into a smooth paste. Spread the herb paste over the salmon fillets and allow to marinate for five minutes.
    3. Remove salmon from marinade and discard remaining marinade. Lightly oil the grate then cook salmon for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes when tested with a fork.
    4. Brush the fillets with melted butter and garnish with lemon slices and mint sprigs before serving.
