Moroccan Grilled Salmon

This recipe was adapted from EatingWell Magazine
They used 2 Tbsp yogurt but it didn't seem

 like enough to marinade with
so I used 1/2 C instead

1/2 C Greek 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
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
