Sriracha Salmon from the Grill
Why You Will Love this Grilled Sriracha Salmon
- It’s easy to make. A couple of salmon fillets, some very ordinary ingredients and a hot grill and you’re in business!
- It’s full of health. Salmon is loaded with Omega 3 fatty acids and protein. It’s great for you!
- It’s full of flavor. Soy sauce, dijon mustard, and a little kick all work together and make this entrée sing with taste!
Sriracha and some low sodium soy sauce made for a healthy sauce for salmon.
I was baching it up for an evening, as Scott was at a work function and so I gave my friend April a call and invited her over to eat, drink, and make some merriment with me.
Salmon is a rich and oily fish; it pairs beautifully with full-bodied white wines and lighter reds.
“With some great flavor combos and a little imagination, I’m always amazed at how easy it is to jazz up seafood.”
It proved to be a fun evening of new foods. We put this easy dish for the grill together along with a very healthy side of Blitva (Swiss Chard and Potatoes.)
Finding fresh seafood is a near-impossibility here in the mid-west. Even our fish that is advertised as “fresh” is almost always fresh-frozen.
Not the same thing. Still, with some great flavor combos and a little imagination, I’m always amazed at how easy it is to jazz up seafood.
This recipe can be made for about $15 for two, probably a third of what you would expect to pay at a good restaurant, should you be lucky enough to find one that could put out a meal of this quality and taste.
The good news is, you can make this at home on your grill, without having to go out.
Grab some salmon, pick up the phone and invite a friend over, and be amazed at the taste of this sriracha salmon, hot off your grill. -Dan
