Don’t be afraid! A simply seasoned salmon fillet on the grill is healthy, delicious, and super-easy.

We’ve invited family over for dinner tonight and we’ll be enjoying the salmon pictured here, a scrumptious salad, and some amazing grilled pears.

GRILLED SALMON RECIPE:

–Place salmon fillets (I prefer Wild) skin-side down on a piece of aluminum foil, large enough to wrap up the edges and create a “foil boat” for the fish.

–Smother the salmon with your marinade of choice, close up the foil boat at the top, and refrigerate for ~30 mins, or a maximum of 1 hour (unlike beef or poultry, fish begins to degrade if left in marinade for too long).

Try their Very Very Teriyaki, too!

Soy Vay makes some great-tasting marinades. Island Teriyaki is what I’m using tonight (pictured here). Try their Very Very Teriyaki, too!

–Pre heat grill to ~400

–Brush grill grates with canola oil

–Remove salmon from foil boats and brush the fish lightly with canola oil. Place on grill, skin-side up for ~3 mins

–While salmon is still on grill, brush the skin with oil and carefully flip the fillet(s)

–Cook skin side down for 5-7 mins depending on thickness of the fish. Salmon should be close to opaque all the way through once fully cooked and flake easily.

–Remove salmon from the grill and serve with The Only Salad You’ll Ever Need To Make.

The simple toss of a few ingredients in a light olive oil dressing will cause your guests to rave!

    Looks like a great recipe. We’ll be trying it. By the way, I use a fish “basket” when cooking
    fish on my open grill. It keeps the fish from falling apart when you flip it over. Available at most food markets and kitchen supply houses.
