Grilled Salmon Recipes You Absolutely Must Try
By Adrian T. Cheng

Fish is just as fulfilling as meat but less the calories. Their meat is extremely versatile as well - they will taste good whether you season them simply with salt and pepper or go all out with a flavorful marinade. One of the most popular fish for grilling is salmon mainly because its meat is firm and hearty. It also has a strong, distinct flavor that is made even better from the smokiness of the grill.

Here are some grilled salmon recipes that you should try cooking for your next barbecue:

Smoky Salmon and Dill

What you need:

  • 1/4 kg. salmon fillet with skin
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. chopped dill
  • 2 tsps. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 3 pinches brown sugar

Combine mayonnaise, dill, mustard and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside. Brush salmon fillets with vegetable oil then cook skin-side down on a pre-heated grill over medium heat for 3 minutes per side. Spread the mayonnaise mixture on top of the fillets and cook for another 3-4 minutes until cooked through or when meat is easily flaked with a fork.
