Lime-Marinated Grilled Salmon

The fresh lime juice and mustard add a nice tang to this moist and flaky grilled salmon. I came up with this marinade after tasting something similar at a friend's house and it is now one of our favorite ways to do fish. You may also use other firm fish steaks instead of salmon; halibut, tuna and swordfish all work well.

4 salmon steaks

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • teaspoon black pepper

  • 4 salmon steaks

Directions

  1. Whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, mustard, ginger, garlic, cayenne pepper, and black pepper in a bowl, and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the salmon steaks, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil grate. Remove the salmon from marinade, and shake off excess. Discard remaining marinade.

  3. Grill until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 5 to 10 minutes per side depending on thickness.
