Ingredients

  aluminum foil    
2 1/4 tsp butter, unsalted   10 g
2 salmon steaks   340 g
2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed   3/4 lemon
2 tsp dried oregano   1 g
  ground pepper to taste    
2 tomatoes, diced   240 g
1 green onions/scallions, finely chopped   15 g
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil   15 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g

Method

  1. Prepare one square of heavy-duty aluminum foil per each steak. Spread the butter on the foil, then lay one steak on top. Add the lemon juice, then season with half of the oregano followed by ground pepper to taste. Wrap the salmon steaks loosely in foil, sealing the edges securely.
  2. Cook on a medium-hot grill for about 10 min, until just tender. Alternatively, the fish may be broiled in the oven. Check with a fork to see if the fish is cooked through.
  3. While the fish is cooking, finely dice the tomatoes and chop the scallions, then put them in a bowl. Add the olive oil, the remaining oregano, and salt to taste. Toss well.
  4. Serve the salmon hot or cold, covered with the salsa.
