Grilled Salmon with Peas


Main Dishes


Recipe from Ciao Italia Family Classics



Remember this rule when cooking any fish: allow about 10 minutes of cooking time per inch of thickness. Fire up the grill for salmon with peas!

Number of Servings

Serves 4


Olive oil grilling spray
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
1 large red onion, peeled, halved and thickly sliced
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 salmon steaks, weighing about 6 ounces each
2 large oranges, quartered
2 cups freshly cooked peas

Preparation - Directions

1. Spray the grill grate with olive-oil grilling spray. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium-high heat.

2. Spread 2 tablespoons of olive oil on half of a large sheet of aluminum foil. Add the onions and coat in the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Fold the other half of aluminum foil over the onions and seal the edges. Place the onion package on the grill.

3. Place the salmon and orange wedges on the grill. Lightly brush the salmon and orange wedges with olive oil.

4. Close the grill top and cook 5-7 minutes, turning the food once. The salmon is done when it has nice grill marks, and is moist and pink in the middle.

5. Transfer the salmon and oranges to a platter. Open the aluminum foil and spread the onions over the salmon. Season with salt and pepper. Squeeze some of the orange juice over the salmon. Serve with a side of peas.
