Barbecued Salmon

This recipe comes from Liz Alderson who runs a UK recipe site called <click here>

This is one of a couple of barbecue salmon recipes for you to enjoy. The recipes could easily be adapted for any fish steaks that you might prefer.

I love barbecues - the smell of them, the taste, the lovely barbecue sauce, the whole al fresco dining experience. Problem is, I live in the UK and so at the drop of a hat, we can find our barbecue coals being rained on and have to move indoors.

So - I have entitled this section on my website "Grills and BBQs" because I am a realist - I am NOT a pessimist despite what my family say about me

Right now, the Sun is warming up in the UK and I am looking longingly at my old Weber kettle barbecue - I shan't be making any long term plans but I might just put a few salmon steaks on the shopping list this week - if the sun shines this weekend, we'll barbie - if not, I'll grill or bake.

The first of my barbecue salmon recipes involves marinading the steaks for about thirty minutes.


1/4 pint (150ml) white wine
3 tbspns olive oil
1 tspn paprika
salt and pepper
1 tbspn lemon juice
1 tspn sugar
handful fresh chopped parsley
4 x 1" (2.5cm) salmon steaks
olive oil


  • Mix the marinade ingredients together and pour over the salmon - leave for about 30 minutes.
  • Take four pieces of foil and brush the shiny side with oil. Place the salmon steaks in the middle of the oiled side and bring up the edges to form a sort of dish.
  • Pour the marinade equally between the four parcels and then seal them tightly.
  • Place over the coals - they will take about 20 minutes or so to cook.
  • After 15 minutes, open the parcels so that the smoke will flavour the salmon.
