Grilled Salmon with Fresh Sorrel Sauce

***June 2022 HSN Dinner Group winner***

Source: Carol and Rob  Stein

Farmed Atlantic salmon (I use this because of its fattiness)

vegetable (neutral) oil

sorrel leaves with thick rib removed

margarine or butter

Oil salmon on both sides. Salt and pepper to taste.  Place cleaned sorrel leaves in Cuisinart with butter or margarine - amount depends  - Mix until you have a paste. Put into a bowl.  

Have grill on medium, put salmon on grill skin side down.  Do NOT TURN!  While salmon is grilling, apply sorrel paste thickly on top of salmon, finish cooking (we like our salmon medium rare), and serve cutting into sections .

Tilapia with Chimichurri Sauce

From: Catherine Martin

(origin: Argentine)

NOTES: This is basically for basting grilled steak, chicken or fish, not so much for marinating, though you can try it if you like. I especially like it on fairly bland fish like tilapia because it gives it a needed boast as it cooks or as soon as it’s almost done. Some people make this simple sauce in a food processor, but while similar to pesto, it differs in that it is much better finely chopped to preserve the sauce’s nice, slightly rough texture. I recommend chopping! The level of heat, though, is entirely up to you, and if you don’t like heat simply leave out the red pepper or chili and/or reduce the garlic. Common variations add fresh cilantro or basil to the oregano or substitute for it completely.
