After indulging and torturing ourselves too much over the weekends, we should give our stomach some respite on Mondays and Tuesdays. What better than grilled and baked stuffs?? While I take a tour of amazing grilled recipes ,thanks to Google, I wonder there are so many ways and ingredients of marination. They are easily available at home or at the nearest store. Like your dresses, you can really mix and match the ingredients. Experiments brings innovation.
Here is a simple recipe of  grilled salmon which actually takes one hour or so to prepare.

Salmon : 4 pieces of 11/2 inches thickness( any variety of fish fillet will do)
Juice of 1 big lime.
Minced Garlic( 3 pods)
Oregano : 1/2 tsp(I used dried)
Thyme : 1/2 tsp( dried)
Melted Butter : 2 tablespoon
Salt : 1/4 th tsp or as per your taste
Coarsly crushed black pepper : 1/2 tsp.
Fresh Parsley , Sliced tomato and cucumber for garnish.
Wash and cut the Salmon pieces. They should be thick and not too small. Marinate the fish fillets with all the ingredients. Keep standing for one hour. Place them in a microwave safe glass plate. I used Microwave+ Grill option for this. Place the plate on the high tool.Grill for 6 minutes at 600 power,take out,turn over, Grill for another 3 minutes.Each microwave differs, cooking time may vary. So we need to check. We learn through trial n error. Garnish. Serve with rice and assorted vegetables lightly sautéed in butter and freshly made salad.
