Easy Grilled Salmon
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! 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.

Ingredients
  • 4-8-ounce salmon filletschoose wild salmon or farm-raised Verlasso salmon
  • 2tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2tsp. Sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper
  • 1 fresh lemon, cut into four wedges
Instructions
  1. Rub both sides of salmon fillets with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Massage the seasonings into the fish and then seal in two ziplock bags. Refrigerate for about an hour.
  2. Preheat grill to 450 degrees. Place marinated fish on grill, skin side up. Make sure you leave enough space between each fillet.
  3. Grill for 4 to 6 minutes or until the fish releases easily from the grill with a flat spatula. Flip salmon carefully with spatula and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to serving dish and allow to sit for about ten minutes, as residual heat continues to cook the meat, and the internal temperature will continue to rise. NOTE: If you spot little white beads on the surface and sides of the salmon, you’ve cooked it too long.
  4. Squeeze a wedge of lemon over each fillet and serve over a bed of fresh greens, roasted veggies and broccoli (or alfalfa) sprouts!
