Asian Grilled Salmon

Asian Grilled Salmon Recipe

Pinit

I used to be intimidated by salmon. Or at least cooking salmon myself. I’m not sure why. Perhaps it was just fish in general that I was afraid of. We didn’t eat much fish in our house growing up.

My mom and Sister Spice are not very fond of fish, though they will eat some kinds. For example, Sister Spice does enjoy her blackened catfish). Salmon, however, is completely out of the question for them. Which is a tragedy, really, because salmon is SO good for you, and it’s actually mine and Herb’s favorite kind of fish. I like it baked, broiled, blackened, raw, whatever. Basically any way but smoked (I don’t like smoky flavor!)

 
Anyway, it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I attempted to fix any salmon myself. I actually find that the best salmon recipes are actually quite simple, like this one for grilled salmon. Okay: I KNOW it’s not exactly grilling weather outside. We got to cheat by using our indoor grill – the griddler. But even if you have to brave the cold, this yummy salmon is worth it!

Grill the salmon for 5 minutes, then flip the salmon over and grill for an additional 3-6 minutes, depending on the thickness of the salmon. Then remove the salmon from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. Yes, salmon need rest too! Feel free to rest for a few minutes yourself at this point, or maybe set the table 🙂 Then remove the skin and enjoy!

We give this salmon 4.5 out of 5 herbs! The flavor is bold, but not overwhelming.

Has anyone else felt intimidated to fix fish, or is it just me?
