Grilling salmon is super easy in the summer time. Salmon hold up well on the grill and can be ready in no time. I grilled my salmon on a grill pan indoors but you can always move the party outside for a quick and healthy dinner!
For the salad, use any veggies you have on hand. I wish I would have had cherry tomatoes and fresh red bell pepper. Yum!
Simple Summer Salmon
Time: 20 minutes
1/3 c. white wine
3 or so fresh basil leaves, torn
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
sprinkle of black pepper
sprinkle of salt
sprinkle of garlic powder
sprinkle of cayenne
sprinkle of dried dill
2 pieces of salmon, fresh or thawed
Mix all ingredients, except for salmon, in a container with a lid.
Close the container and shake vigorously until well mixed. Let flavors sit for about 3-5 minutes and then shake again. Over medium-high heat, grill salmon, skin side down and covered, for 6-8 minutes.
Brush salmon with wine mixture, flip, and then brush again. Grill, covered, for an additional 6-8 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve over a green salad with plenty of veggies and the salad dressing of your choice. Yum!
- 1000 Island dressing was delicious on this dish.
- Seriously, pack your salad out with veggies… I used cucumbers, radishes, spinach, carrots, broccoli, onions, green peas… and a few croutons for extra crunch.
- You don’t have to serve this salmon on a salad. You could serve it over brown rice or alone with a side of veggies.
- Don’t have fresh basil? You could use a little dried basil.
