Grilled Salmon

If you are beginner to salmon, in other words, you have not much explored salmon or have not cooked before, let me show the way. The cooking way of course (Malaysian Indian Fish Curry, Chilli Soy Fish, Fried Kembung Assam Sauce & Ikan Pari/Stingray Sambal). Salmon unlike our local catch. They pretty much don't need much messing around in terms of ingredients. All you need? Some seasoning of dried oregano, dried mint leaves or other suitable dried herb, plus some crushed black pepper, salt and a tiny bit of oil for pan grilling (Grilled Fish In Banana Leaf, Otak-Otak Grilled Fish Stuffed With Sambal). In fact, can be done in a jiffy and a dash of lemon juice atop grilled salmon. My-My!  

2 (abt 200g) pieces salmon
1/2  tsp dried oregano
1/2  tsp dried mint leaves
1/2  tsp crushed black pepper
1 tbsp oil
Lemon wedges
Salt for taste

Sprinkle and rub oregano, mint, pepper and salt on both sides of  salmon.
Heat the portable grill and drizzle oil inside.
Grill on both sides for a crispiness on the outside.
Dish out and serve with lemon wedges.
