Grilled Salmon

Looking for a quick, healthy dinner full of flavor? Try some simple grilled salmon. It takes about 8-10 minutes.

Grilled Salmon

2 salmon fillets
olive oil
1/2 a lemon
cajun rub or blackened seasoning

Rinse salmon fillets in water. Place in small container and drizzle with olive oil and juice of 1/2 a lemon. Pick up the fillet, allowing the excess oil and lemon to drip off. Season with cajun rub. the seasoning will not stick to the salmon if it is too wet.

Heat grill until medium hot. If using a propane grill, let it heat for about 10 minutes on medium hi setting. If your grill is not seasoned, spray some oil on the grilling surface and wipe it off with a paper towel folded over several times.

Place fillets skin side down with the grain of the salmon perpendicular to the grates. Grill for 6-8 minutes. The salmon should flip over easily. The skin should be a little crispy, so it will come off easily and in one piece. Discard skin. Feel free to add extra seasoning after you remove the skin. Cook for additional 6-8 minutes or until salmon is firm to touch.

Serve immediately as fish cools down quickly. Add instant microwave brown rice and steamed veggies for a delicious, healthy meal.
