Ric Orlando's Chimichurri True North Salmon with Argentinean Tomato Relish


Prepare Chimichurri Marinade and Sauce:
1. Place veggies, herbs and spices in a food processor and pulse to grind to a pesto-like consistency.
2. Add lemon juice, vinegar and oil and whirl to combine evenly.
3. Reserve 2 oz. for marinating and basting the salmon and 2 oz. for the tomato relish. Put remainder in a bowl to serve on the side.
Mix the Tomato Relish:
1. Mix all relish ingredients and leave at room temperature.
Grill the Salmon:
1. Preheat grill to medium high heat.
2. Brush the salmon with the chimichurri and allow to marinate a few minutes.
3. Cook salmon face side down at the hottest heat source for about two minutes or until lightly caramelized.
4. Using tongs, carefully turn over and move to a cooler spot on the grill. Allow to finish cooking gently, until firm, about 2 more minutes.
5. Plate the salmon, garnished with the tomato relish. Serve the remaining chimichurri on the side.
