I shied away from cooking fish for years because I thought it was too complicated. Boy was I wrong!
Gone are the days of eating salmon and other deliciously nutritious fish in restaurants alone. Today, we grill, bake, and broil fish on a regular basis and I can’t believe how simple it is (so much easier than chicken!).
This recipe for grilled salmon uses five simple ingredients: salmon, olive oil, sea salt, pepper, and fresh lemon. I rubbed each salmon fillet with the olive oil, salt and pepper and then sealed them in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator for an hour or so to marinate.
I served the salmon over a bed of greens, roasted veggies, and broccoli sprouts, sprinkled with a touch of Parmesan and asiago cheese and then drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I always like to top my salad off with a crank or two of Himalayan sea salt and fresh ground pepper.
Just a note: be careful not to cook your fish too long, otherwise it will be dry and lose its natural flavor. Follow this recipe and you’re golden!
