    I adapted this recipe from one in Steven Raichlen's The BBQ Bible. It come originally from a famous seafood restaurant in Rio de Janeiro. I served it along with Tuscan grilled rib eye steaks for a UCLA-BYU game watching party. UCLA was a winner and so was this Salmon recipe! Enjoy!


    • 4 salmon fillets, 8 ounces each
    • 6 cloves garlic, peeled
    • 1/2 medium onion, roughly chopped
    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 1/4 cup dry white wine
    • 2 Tbsp ketchup
    • 2 Tbsp paprika
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil (or cilantro)


    1. Combine all ingredients except the basil in a blender or food processor and process to a smooth puree. Add the basil or cilantro and pulse a few times until leaves are finely diced.
    2. Place the cleaned fillets in a baking dish coating both sides thoroughly with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
    3. Preheat the grill to high.
    4. Oil the grate and grill skin side down (if the fillets have skin) covered for 7-9 minutes depending on thickness. Flip and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
    5. Transfer to a serving platter and serve the fillets immediately.
