Grilled Salmon


Some people are intimidated by grilling fish and I’ll admit I was also. However, my husband bought a new grill and he loves to grill everything so after much encouragement, we finally tested this recipe on the grill. It was worth it because it was delicious and very healthy.

If you love salmon and are afraid to cook on the BBQ or don’t have a BBQ, check out my recipe, the perfectly seared salmon.
