Cuban-Style Grilled Salmon

Recipe modified. Original recipe from the Food Network Magazine.
The recipe is a nice change from some of your more typical salmon recipes. It has a nice bite to it, but it's not overpowering and doesn't take away from the natural flavour of the salmon itself.

What you'll need
2 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of one lemon
2 Garlic cloves, minced
2 Large shallots, minced
1 tsp Ground cumin
1 tsp Cayenne pepper
1 tsp Salt
1 small bunch Cilantro, roughly chopped
4 - 6oz Center-cut salmon fillets, skin removed

How to
1. Preheat grill to medium high.

2. In a bowl, whisk the oil, lemon juice, garlic, shallots, cumin, cayenne salt and cilantro. Add the salmon and turn to coat. Let marinate for 15 minutes at room temperature.

3. Brush the grill with a bit of oil. Grill the salmon, round side down, until marked on the bottom, about 4 minutes. Turn and continue grilling until marked on the other side and cooked through, 2 to 3 more minutes. Serve and enjoy!
