Curried Salmon Recipe

Grilling season is upon us, and while we do tend to use our BBQ year round, summer of course is where it’s at and we grill 4-5 times a week. Also where it’s at is when my hubby decides it’s his turn to try a new recipe for me to write about (yes, HE did the cooking!)…so here it is, a new taste for grilled salmon!

Curried Salmon | Addicted to Recipes

1 1/2 – 2 lbs salmon fillet (with or without skin) – ours was without

1/2 cup plain greek yogurt

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 teaspoons mild curry paste

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Preheat your grill – medium-high.

In a bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, lemon juice, curry paste, salt and pepper.  Mix well.

Place the salmon in a shallow dish or in a ziploc bag and pour the marinade over the fish.  Coat well.

Reserving the marinade, place the salmon on the grill (if you are using salmon with skin, place skin side down).  Brush the top with the marinade.  Close the lid on your BBQ and grill for 5-7 minutes.

Turn the salmon over on the grill, and cook until the fish is cooked (will be opaque and will easily flake) – approximately 8-10 minutes.

Remove from grill onto a serving plate, sprinkle with the chopped cilantro, serve and enjoy!


This was a nice change for our salmon.  Great flavour, nice tang.  A hint of curry – not overwhelming at all.  Though being the curry fan that I am, I might be tempted to add a little curry powder to the marinade next time!  We devoured the meal, and my hubby and oldest son were “fighting” over the last morsels.  This was perfect with a nice green salad, chock full of vegetables.

    I love salmon, it's one of my favourites, but lately I can't cook it myself I get quite nauseaous and have to get someone else to cook it, it's weird because I have no problem eating it if I didn't cook it, and this recipe looks so good I'll have to find someone to cook it for
