Dine-In: Grilling Salmon


Seafood has never been my favorite category of food. I always eat fish for their omega-3 fatty acids, but have not really enjoyed it. A few weeks ago I was in a restaurant in Chicago looking over the menu. I looked at the chicken, which is normally what I pick, then the salmon and beef. The salmon came with roasted sweet carrots, asparagus and potatoes. The vegetables sounded delicious so, out of character, I selected the salmon. After one bite of the salmon I knew I made the right choice. As soon as I got back to Texas all I wanted was cedar plank salmon.

This weekend I strongly suggest grilling salmon for you and your family. Fresh salmon will give you the best results, but frozen will work just fine. Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over your salmon; make sure the fish is evenly coated. Sprinkle your favorite seasoning over the fish. When I grill salmon I normally use either Julio’s or citrus grilling seasoning. Preheat your grill to medium heat. I recommend using either a fish basket or cedar plank to grill your fish. I personally enjoy using cedar planks to grill my fish. If you use the planks, soak them in water for at least an hour before grilling. Place your fish on the grill and grill for 5 minutes for every ½-inch thickness. I hope you and your family enjoy grilling salmon this weekend!
