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!

  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.
