Grilled It!

It was a beautiful day to grill outside today, and the Salmon I took out of the fridge was perfectly suited for a trip to the grill.

I always choose to grill salmon with the skin on.  It is much easier to handle that way, doesn't break up so easily and the skin adds oil and flavor to the meat.

Today I chose to sprinkle it with a little Old Bay Seafood Seasoning, a little Garlic Salt and some Pepper.  Oil your grill plates BEFORE placing the salmon on the HOT grill.

Close the lid and check on the salmon fillets after about five minutes.  You may turn it ONCE if you wish to have grill marks on the top of the salmon, but do it carefully as you do not want to over cook the fish or to have it break up.

To keep your carbohydrates in check serve with grilled or oven roasted asparagus and a side salad.
You will be regaining that bikini figure before you know it!
