Grilled Wild Sockeye Salmon Northwest Style
Recipe from Harris Teeter's Fresh Catch Newsletter The name sockeye comes from an attempt to translate the word suk-kegh from British Columbia's native Coast Salish language. Suk-kegh means red fish. The sockeye, also called red or blueback salmon, is among the smallest of the seven Pacific salmon species, but their succulent, bright-orange meat is prized above all others. They range in size from 24 to 33 inches in length and weigh between 5 and 15 lbs.
Refrigerate: 1 Hour
- 2 pound(s) fresh sockeye salmon fillets
- 3/4 cup(s) extra virgin olive oil (of Apulia)
- 3/4 cup(s) soy sauce
- 2 tablespoon(s) minced fresh garlic
- 2 tablespoon(s) chopped fresh rosemary
- 6 ounce(s) frozen limeade, thawed
- 1. Combine limeade, olive oil, soy sauce, garlic and rosemary in a flat dish or gallon size zip-top plastic bag.
- 2. Rinse the fresh Alaskan sockeye salmon fillets under cold water, pat dry with a paper towel.
- 3. Place salmon in the marinade, turning several times to coat. Cover, if needed, and refrigerate for one hour.
- 4. Preheat grill/coals to medium-high heat. Remove salmon from marinade and place on a well oiled grill, 4 to 5 inches from heat.
- Cook, turning once, 8 to 10 minutes. Cook just until the fillets begin to flake.
