Salmon on the Braai

I spent the past weekend in Oslo. My knowledge of Norway is pretty limited and by far the most exiting part of the visit for me was the possible access to fresh Norwegian Salmon. I was not disappointed. Due to the bad weather, the first piece of fresh fish that I bought could not be braaied, so I cut it up in pieces and ate a man sized portion of Salmon Sashimi. The next day I had better luck with the weather, and managed the braai described below.

Braaied Salmon. One of the best meals you will ever eat.

Ingredients per single serving:

  • 250 gram Norwegian Salmon fillet
  • Dash of Soy Sauce
  • Quarter of a Lemon
  • Dash of Olive Oil
  • Black Pepper


  1. Drizzle the fish with Soy Sauce on both sides.
  2. Squeeze the juice of the lemon over both sides.
  3. Roll the fish around in the sauce, making sure all parts are covered, and then drizzle with Olive Oil.
  4. Grind a bit of black pepper over the fish.
  5. Leave for 10 – 20 minutes for the sauces to slightly enter the meat. Longer is not good, as the delicate meat of the fish will then be broken down to much by the marinade.
  6. Turn the meat around one final time, ensuring maximum exposure of all sides to the marinade.
  7. Braai for between 5 and 10 minutes on medium coals, turning only once.
  8. Eat immediately whilst still warm.
