The Sun Sets On Grilled Rosemary Salmon

Around the Orange Bee we just can’t seem to escape from our leisurely evenings. Leisurely evenings and food blogging are not simultaneous.  I know from reading other food blogs that preparing the meal, photographing it and serving it before it becomes cold or your family loads up and heads to the nearest fast food joint, is a challenge we face regularly.  I don’t encounter this dilemma when I bake or make a little something simple; but when a meal is in the mix, and hungry family is lurking, the pressure is on.  I attempt to not put my family through this scenario too often.

On the evening I made this scrumptious salmon it was only my man Dan and me, sipping our respective beer and wine and enjoying yet another evening on the porch, taking in the view, tossing a ball for the Border Collie, and watching the sun set.  What the sun is setting???????  Oh dear, gosh, goodness, throw that fish on a plate and shoot it!  It was a little frantic there for a moment, but the fish is a must try!   We topped a caesar salad with our salmon.  The fish is light, healthy, garlicky and fresh to the palate.  We enjoyed every last bite as we watched the sun slip beyond the horizon.


Grilled Rosemary Salmon 

Salmon filet for 2
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup canola oil
Rosemary-Garlic Paste (recipe follows)
2-3 tbsp. fresh rosemary

Rosemary-Garlic Paste
1/2 tsp. rosemary, chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 tsp. salt

Prepare paste, mixing rosemary, garlic and salt.  Rub paste on salmon.  Place salmon in a glass container.

Whisk together orange juice and oil and pour over salmon, be sure salmon is completely covered.  Refrigerate for 2 hours turning frequently.

Heat grill to HOT.  Grill salmon until meat begins to flake.  I do not flip my fish when grilling.  I buy fillets with the skin still on and place my fish skin side down on the grill, allowing it to cook until done.  Be sure not to overcook your fish.  Serve as an entrée or as a topper to Caesar salads.

    thanks for this recipe, i have wanted to try Salmon grilling for a while. do you have the recipe for your Cesar Salad posted anywhere?

    • Rhonda – the salmon is a winner. The caesar salad is simple. Wash and dry some romaine, tear it, and mix with parmesan, croutons and caesar dressing. We like Brianna’s store bought caesar dressing. I prefer homemade dressings but sometimes for convenience sake we do this on our caesars. It’s pretty darn tasty! Let me know if you try it.

    The sun is setting earlier and earlier here too making it harder and harder to photograph meals, unless I make them earlier or wrap a plate to shoot the next day. I’ve done that a few times only to find the plate gone the next day, those hungry kids! Sad to see summer go with all that beautiful light for photographing.

    Great meal, Linda! Mmm, and that rosemary – I can almost smell it!

  4. I love simple meals like this and relaxing days when it’s not too hot out. This looks wonderful.

Make my day - leave me your thoughts!
