Grilled Garlic and Dill Salmon with Grilled Peppers and Zucchini

I went to my friends Maryam, Ramin and Justin’s house a few nights ago because Raphael is gone hunting with my dad and uncles in the Yukon for a week. I think I have mentioned in a previous post that I don’t like fish but we live in Vancouver so I really need to take advantage of eating what is from here. On a side note, I just wrote a paper for school about the importance of eating fresh and locally. Anyways, Maryam had made Salmon, which is the lesser of the fish evils. She made it with the following recipe and it was really delish! So if you’re like me and don’t like fish but know you should eat more because it’s good for you; you’ll like this recipe.  Hope you like!

  • 2 Salmon Steaks
  • 2 tablespoons dill – fresh or dry
  • 1 juice of lemon
  • 5 garlic cloves – chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper

Mix everything together and put in Ziploc or container and leave in the fridge to marinade for however long you have.  15 mins to 24 hours.
Spray grill. I used my Cuisinart Grill but you can use any kind of grill or the BBQ.
Grill fish about 6 or 7 minutes on each side.
Grill your veggies with a little salt, pepper and olive oil.
Finish off with a squeeze of lemon juice.


Notes and Tips: When buying fish really try to buy fresh never frozen. Also make sure the fish doesn’t smell. If you open the package and it has an overwhelming fishy smell it’s not good. Take it back to the store for a refund. Fish should smell like nothing or at most like the ocean. This is not only for salmon but all sea food.

Notes and Tips: This is more a side note than tip but my picture sucks because I took it with the camera on the laptop. Raph took the good camera to the Yukon.
