Grilled Salmon With Potato and Watercress Salad

Type: Fish, Low Fat
Courses: Salads
Serves: 6 people

Recipe Ingredients

3 lbs 1362g / 48ozSmall red thin-skinned
1 cup 62g / 2.2ozThinly sliced red onion
1 cup 237mlSeasoned rice vinegar
1/2 lb 227g / 8ozWatercress - about
  Rinsed and crisped
1   Salmon fillet - about 2 lbs.
1 tablespoon 15mlSoy sauce
1 tablespoon 15mlFirmly packed brown sugar
2 cups 474mlAlder or mesquite wood chips
  Soaked in water

Recipe Instructions

In a 5-to 6-quart pan, bring about 2 quarts water to a boil over high heat; add potatoes. Cover and simmer over low heat until potatoes are tender when pierced, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and chill.

Soak the onions about 15 minutes in cold water to cover. Drain and mix onions with rice vinegar. Cut potatoes in quarters; add to onions.

Trim tender watercress sprigs from stems, then finely chop enough of the course stems to make 1/2 cup (discard extras or save for other uses). Mix chopped stems on a large oval platter with potato salad alongside; cover and keep cool.

Rinse salmon and pat dry. Place, skin side down, on a piece of heavy foil. Cut foil to follow outlines of fish, leaving a 1-inch border. Crimp edges of foil to fit up against edge of fish. Mix soy sauce with brown sugar and brush onto the salmon fillet.

Lay fish on center of grill, not over coals or flame. Cover barbecue (open vents for charcoal) and cook until fish is barely opaque in thickest part (cut to test), 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer fish to platter with salad. Add salt to taste. Serve hot or cold.
