Serves 4 | Prep: 15 min. | Grill: 6 min


  • 12 oz fresh or frozen skinless salmon fillets, about ¾ inch thick
  • 1/3 cup coarsely snipped fresh oregano

  • ¼ cup sliced green onions
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp minced garlic (1 clove)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper


  • Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Cut into four 3-ounce pieces; set aside.
  • In a food processor bowl combine oregano, cilantro, green onions, lemon juice, oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Cover and process until chopped. Transfer to a shallow dish.
