Grilled Salmon with Green Goddess Dressing


by: Cooking Bird

Several whole fish lend themselves to grilling, and every professional chef knows a larger piece of fish is more likely to retain its juiciness, though the really big ones are a little cumbersome to turn, so I recommend looking for those that are smaller than two pounds.

1.  To make the sauce: In a medium bowl, whisk the sauce ingredients.

2.  Generously brush or spray the fillets with oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Grill, flesh side down, over Direct High heat until you can lift the fillets with tongs off the grate without sticking, 6 to 8 minutes. Turn the fillets and cook them to desired doneness, 2 to 3 minutes for medium-rare. Slide a spatula between the skin and flesh, and transfer the fillets to serving plates. Spoon the sauce over the fillets. Serve immediately.
