simple, grilled salmon that is so good

gr salmon wideSimple is sometimes so, so good.  You know like an apple on a hot day, or just a simple scoop of vanilla ice cream…sometimes simple really is best.

Salmon can be simple?

Sure it can be, but it is a special simple.  This salmon is seasoned with a favorite little blend, giving it a ton of flavor while still letting the fish be the star.    You could definitely use some fresh herbs or additional spices if you wish, but this is a favorite blend for us.

Grilled?  Why?

Why not? I mean it’s summer here in SE Texas and that is grilling weather.  Anytime we can cook outside and not heat up the house I am all about that.   If you cannot grill or it’s not that time of year you can roast this in the oven or cook on the stove top in a grill pan or skillet.

According to The Hubby grilling adds a little bit of extra something to anything and everything.  I mean he has grilled everything from burgers to pineapple, so peaches to steak…anything is fair game for The Hubby.  I have to agree as well, there is something super yummy about grilled salmon…especially this salmon.

Heat the grill up…

Salmon or not

Now if salmon is not your thing don’t worry…technique would be great with flounder, tilapia or grouper.  Even catfish would work, I mean if you aren’t going to fry it up.

Don’t forget the sides…

couscous wideThis grilled fish is great on it’s own but it is even better with this black bean quinoa side or this grilled veggie couscous salad  You could grill the veggies while you cook the salmon, making this a meal you will not forget.

Whatever you decide to serve with this salmon, trust me this is a grilled meal that everyone will love (even the non-fish lovers in your life).
