Salmon, Amaretto Marinated (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 4

1 lb. fresh salmon
1 tsp. freshly grated lemon peel
1/4 cup lemon juice (peel and juice of two lemons)
4 tbsp. Amaretto (almond liqueur)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp. dried rosemary (or dried oregano, crushed by hand or crushed in a mortar)
1 clove crushed garlic

Rinse fish and pat dry. Cut into 4 pieces.

In a shallow dish, combine lemon peel, lemon juice, Amaretto, salt and pepper, and garlic. Add fish and toss to coat. Let marinate at room temperature for 1 hour, turning occasionally. Drain fish, and reserve marinade.

Rub fish pieces with rosemary. Brush with marinade. Broil or grill fish 4" from heat for 5 minutes. Turn pieces over, brush with marinade and broil 5 minutes longer, until done. Garnish with additional rosemary. For the garnish I use chopped fresh parsley or chopped fresh cilantro.

Poster's Notes:
This was a big hit tonight at my dinner party. We used oregano not the rosemary. We marinated it in the refrigerator for a few hours and then let it stand at room temperature for a short time while the grill was heating.
