Grilled Salmon with Cucumber-Plum Salad

Grilled Salmon with Cucumber‑Plum Salad

The combination of cucumbers and plums gives this dish a perfect balance with the smoky grilled flavor of the salmon.

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Servings: 4


  1. In a large shallow dish, mix the marinade ingredients and coat the salmon with it. This can be done just before grilling, or up to one hour before. Refrigerate while marinating.
  2. Heat a charcoal or gas grill until medium hot. Lightly oil the grill with tongs holding paper towels dipped in oil. Grill salmon 4 to 6 minutes on each side.
  3. Slice cucumber lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Thinly slice crosswise.  You should have about 2 cups. Combine with plums and vinegar. Place a salmon filet on each of 4 plates and top with the cucumber salad. Garnish with pea shoots, if desired.
