Ingredients for the Salmon Steak
  • 4 Salmon steaks (about 180 grams each)
  • 1 Lime
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 4 Branches of coriander
  • 6 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • Coarse sea salt
  • 7 Tbsp. White wine
Ingredients for the salad
  • 140 grams Lamb’s lettuce
  • 8 Cherry tomatoes
  • 1 Mini cucumber
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • Coarse sea salt
  • 4 Tbsp. Olive Oil
Step 1

Marinate the salmon
Start off with the marinade for the salmon fillet. Chop coriander and garlic finely and place it in a shallow bowl. Add fresh lime juice, white wine and olive oil. Season with fresh ground pepper and coarse sea salt. Stir it properly and put it into a freezer bag together with the salmon. Let it sit in the fridge for three hours.

Step 2

Prepare the side salad
What to serve with salmon fillets? Otto recommends a salad with lamb’s lettuce, cherry tomatoes and cucumber. Wash the lamb’s lettuce and arrange it on a plate together with the cherry tomatoes and cucumber. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle some olive oil over the salad.

Step 3

How to make the grilled salmon
It’s getting hot! Preheat the Otto Grill onto 800°C  for three minutes. Set the Meat-O-Meter on stage three. Place the salmon fillet on the grill grate and sear each side briefly until the surface is turning slightly pink. Depending on the size of the fish this should take between 30 seconds and one minute. The seared salmon steak should then be super tender with finest roast aromas.

Otto’s tip: Turn the salmon only once so the fish is not falling apart.

Step 4

Do you like your salmon cooked all the way through? Absolutely no problem! Slightly cut the fish open to determine the cooking level by the colour of the salmon. If it’s still translucent on the inside, the fish is still raw. If it has a bright pink colour, you cooked it all the way through.

Step 5

Carefully take the seared salmon steak off the Otto Grill. and serve it on the salad. Season it as you like and enjoy!
