1 lb. (500 g) Salmon fillet (skin on)
3 tbsp. olive oil
¼ cup fresh squeezed lime juice
4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 ½ tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. grated lime rind
2 minced garlic cloves, minced
Pepper and salt to taste
How you prepare:
- Slice salmon into 4-6 pieces.
- Whisk together the marinade ingredients and marinate salmon for a few minutes to an hour.
- Place fillets (skin side down) on a greased grill, 4-6 inches (10-15 cm) from medium hot coals or on medium high setting.
