It’s finally time folks!  Let’s get grilling,  starting with some beautiful salmon fillets.  Salmon is packed with ultra healthy omega-3’s and protein which makes this fish an easy choice for dinner.  So lets fire up those BBQs and do our bodies some good!

Here is a great recipe to try this week.

Firecracker Salmon

Ingredients

  • 4 6-ounce salmon portions
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon chopped green onions
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Combine all ingredients except the salmon.  Place salmon in a large resealable bag (or two).  Pour marinade mixture over top.  Force all the air from the bag and seal.  Place in the refrigerator and marinate for 1 to 2 hours.  Preheat grill.  Remove fish from bag and place on a hot grill. Brush with some of the marinade and discard the rest.  Cook over a high heat for about 4 to 5 minutes per side or until done.  Time might vary because of the thickness of the fish.  When salmon flakes easily an is a consistent color and texture through the middle remove from grill and serve.

Serve this along side an Asian style slaw and sweet potato fries and you instantly become a top notch chef.
