Herb-Crusted Salmon

Something extraordinary happens when fresh herbs in an olive oil-based paste meet the searing heat of a grill. They turn smoky and create an earthy crust for salmon.

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
4 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
6 salmon fillets, skin on, each 6 to 7 ounces and 1 inch thick

Combine the parsley, cilantro and basil in a small bowl. Add the chili powder, salt pepper, olive oil, and soy sauce. Mix thoroughly to create a paste. Evenly spread the paste over the flesh of the salmon fillets.

Place the salmon fillets, flesh side down, directly over medium heat. Grill, turning once, until just opaque an the thickest part, 10 to 12 minutes total.
