Special diet :
125 ml / 1/2 cup mayonnaise
10 ml / 2 tsp pesto
1 small hot pepper, seeded, chopped finely
1 clove garlic, crushed
5 ml / 1 tsp dried oregano
1 lemon, zest grated
To taste salt and freshly ground pepper
4 pieces, 180 g / 6 oz each salmon filet, skin on
As required olive oil
In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, pesto, hot pepper, garlic, oregano, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Set aside.
Preheat the barbecue.
Brush the salmon skin with oil and lightly oil the barbecue grill.
Place the salmon pieces skin side down on the grill and spread two-thirds of the mayonnaise mixture on top, leaving the sides visible to check for doneness.
Cover and grill for 10 minutes. Check the skin: if it seems to be cooking to quickly, slide a double sheet of aluminum foil under each filet, cut to the size of the filet.
Continue cooking until the flesh is almost opaque right through.
Serve immediately with the remaining mayonnaise.
