contest winner icon


  • 2 Tbsp. pine nuts, toasted
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup packed fresh basil (dried basil can be used)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small red chili or 1 medium jalapeno chopped (include the seeds if you like it spicy)
  • 4 salmon steaks, approx. 4 oz, each


Place pine nuts, honey, lemon juice, olive oil, basil, garlic and chile in a blender. Process until the mixture is pureed.

Spoon the sauce over the salmon, and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for a least 4 hours, turning twice.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat and oil rack. Remove the salmon from the marinade. Sprinkle the salmon with salt and pepper on both sides.

Place salmon on grill rack. Grill until opaque throughout, 5 to 6 minutes on each side, brushing occasionally with reserved marinade.
