  • 1 pound salmon (or any fish you prefer, I have used swordfish as well)

  • ⅓ cup 1% or skim milk

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • ½ tsp salt

  • ½ tsp pepper

  • ⅛ tsp cayenne (optional)

  • ⅛ tsp cumin (optional)

  • 3 Tbsp freshly grated parmesan chese


  1. Preheat grill to medium high (or preheat oven to 350F)

  2. In a medium bowl, mash together sweet potatoes, milk, garlic cloves, salt, pepper, cayenne, and cumin.

  3. Place fish skin-side down on a sheet of aluminum foil (on a pan covered in aluminum foil if baking).

  4. Spread the potato mixture evenly over the fish, then sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

  5. Grill for 20 minutes (about 10 minutes per inch thickness plus 5 minutes more since it's covered in potatoes). If baking, bake for 18 then broil for 5 or until potatoes are just golden.
