1-2-3 Grilled salmon

My brother-in-law has gone fishing lots lately, and brought us some filets from his latest catch. I love salmon, so I eagerly looked through my cookbooks to find a recipe I hadn’t tried yet so I could share it here. I loved that the 1-2-3 Grilled Salmon from Taste of Home looked easy, because I didn’t have that much energy the day that I made it.

The Changes

This recipe is already Joseph-safe.

garlic powder, soy sauce, olive oil, mustard, salmon

The Method

Combine garlic powder, soy sauce, olive oil, and mustard in a bowl and stir well. Pour half into a large zip-loc bag, and then add salmon fillets. Marinade salmon in the fridge for 30 minutes. Refrigerate remaining marinade separately.

Preheat grill, then coat with oil. If you don’t have a grill-safe spray, coat paper towel with oil, then rub it on the grill with a pair of long tongs. Grill salmon over high heat, covered, for 5-10 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Brush reserved marinade over cooked fish, and serve.

This recipe is featured in my cookbook The Best of the Rice of Life: Over 70 Gluten-free, Dairy-free, and Nut-free Recipes available now in print (Amazon, Create Space) and e-book (Kindle, iBooks, nook, Kobo and Smashwords).

What I Thought

We all quite liked this. Joseph was asking for seconds and thirds. My husband could detect a pleasant sweet taste, which I’m not sure where it came from. Perhaps the fish itself. I’d definitely do this again.
