Grilled Salmon Steaks //Asian Style





  • 4 salmon steaks (about 6 ounces each)
  • 1 cup cucumber, diced
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce ( or oyster sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Combine all ingredients except, salmon steaks, black pepper, and sesame oil, in a medium mixing bowl for make relish. Let mixture sit for 1 hour at room temperature. Preheat grill. Brush salmon steaks with oil and season with salt and black pepper. Grill steaks on direct high heat for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from grill and top with relish.

**Tip.. I set steaks skin side down diagonal (2 o'clock) for 2-3 minutes, then rotate (same side down to 10 o'clock... gives the crisscrossed grill marks..).. and then do the same for the other side..

**Tip.. Use a GOOD spatula, and NOT tongs, to avoid it falling apart.

**Tip.. Used a oiled rag on grill to oil the grill first, and help keep salmon from sticking and coming apart on ya
