How to Make Zesty Smoked Salmon with Avocado Tomato Salad
1.Mix all ingredients except fish together in a zip-lock bag. Add Salmon fillets and massage marinade into meat until evenly coated. Seal the bag and place in a bowl in the refrigerator (the bowl protects against leakage); let the Salmon marinate at least 4 hours.
2.Make the salad in the mean time by mixing all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and cover it till service. (Make the Salad just half an hour to 1 hour before service for best taste).
3.Clean grill and preheat to high. Lightly dip a wad of paper towels in vegetable oil and, using tongs, carefully rub over grates several times until glossy and coated.
4.Place fillet on the grill (make sure they are well-coated with the marinade; the more garlic, lemon zest and herbs on the fish, the better!). Grill, covered, for 2-3 minutes per side.
5.Serve hot in a plate with Avocado salad on the side.
