Salmon Chimichurri

This easy to make South American pesto can add a new flavor to an old stand by (grilled salmon). It’s also great if you want something fresh and homemade for entertaining with out going to too much trouble on your end. Give it a try because it can be a great low carb and low calorie alternative to sneaky sauces that can ruin a perfectly healthy piece of fish!


4 salmon filets
1 tbsp finely chopped garlic
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp lemon juice
3/4 cup fresh Italian parsley leaves
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves

Grill your salmon with the extra virgin olive oil as usual, I trust this isn’t your first go round with salmon. Now place the remaining ingredients in a blender or food processer. Blend till smooth and all one color. Voila! Simply spoon evenly over your four grilled fillets! How easy was that?!
