This is one of the most impressive salmon steak recipes.
You marinade the fish in honey, herbs and lemon then grill it.
The cucumber relish is one you'll use over and over with plain fish or meats.
If you have time, it's best to marinade the fish for a couple of hours.
Also the relish - make it an hour or two in advance so that the flavors mingle.
It doesn't matter if you don't have the time because just 30 minutes will do - time to prepare and cook some new potatoes and prepare a salad or some plain vegetables.
If you don't have fresh herbs, that's OK - fresh are better, but if you only have dried, then use 1 teaspoon dried to 1 tablespoon of fresh as a substitute.
So - the recipe :-) to serve 4
Salmon Steaks with Cucumber Relish
4 salmon steaks about 7 oz (200g)
1 teaspoon sea salt - crushed
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 tablespoon clear honey
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
zest of 1 lemon
juice of 2 lemons
1 cucumber - peeled, deseeded and chopped
1 clove garlic - peeled and crushed
2 tablespoons fresh dill - finely chopped
1/4 pint (150ml) white wine vinegar
2 teaspoons honey
sprigs of parsley, dill or few fresh chives to garnish.
Put the relish ingredients into a bowl - mix thoroughly and leave in the fridge for up to 2 hours.
Mix the salt, pepper, honey, chives and lemon zest and juice together.
Put the salmon steaks in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over.
Leave up to 2 hours - turning to soak up the marinade.
Take the salmon from the marinade and barbecue over hot coals for about 3 to 4 minutes each side.
The fish should be cooked through - you can tell if it's firm to the touch.
Leave to rest for a minute and then serve with the cucumber relish as a side dish.
Garnish with fresh herb sprigs if you have them.
Buttered new potatoes and either a salad or plain vegetables will make this one of the best salmon steak recipes you will ever cook.
