Tangy plain yogurt mixed with the classic ingredients for chermoula—a Moroccan spice mix—serves as both the marinade and the sauce in this salmon dish. If you like your food on the spicy side, add a pinch of cayenne to the mixture.
2 tablespoons   low-fat or nonfat plain yogurt
2 tablespoons   chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons   chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon  lemon juice
1 1/2  teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove  garlic, minced
3/4 teaspoon   paprika
1/2 teaspoon   ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon   salt
Freshly ground pepper  to taste
8 ounces   center-cut salmon fillet, skinned and cut into 2 portions
2   lemon wedges

Tip: To skin a salmon fillet: Place a fish fillet on a clean cutting board, skin side down. Starting at the tail end, slip the blade of a long, sharp knife between the fish flesh and the skin, holding the skin down firmly with your other hand. Gently push the blade along at a 30° angle, separating the fillet from the skin without cutting through either.

Combine yogurt, parsley, cilantro, lemon juice, oil, garlic, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the sauce; cover and refrigerate. Place salmon in a medium sealable plastic bag. Pour in the remaining yogurt mixture, seal the bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 10 (or up to 30) minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium-high.

Oil the grill rack. Remove the salmon from the marinade, blotting any excess. Grill the salmon until it is browned and just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Top the salmon with the reserved sauce and garnish with lemon wedges.

easy, fast, and great taste!
Salmon is the one fish everyone in my family will eat so I am always looking for new ways to prepare it - this recipe is perfect - except for the salmon itself, I think all the ingredients are pretty common in the avg kitchen - I do recommend doubling the marinade - I also did let the salmon marinate the full 30 min and during that time I was abe to preapre a salad, rice, and a veggie - the fish itself takes next to no time to grill - I would definitely make this again!
