Wild Grilled Salmon w:Mixed Spinach SaladThis Grilled Salmon is big on flavor and simple to make. Grilling the salmon steaks really bring out their flavor. I don’t eat fish but when I do, it needs to be worth it. I paired my salmon with this Mixed Spinach Salad w/ Balsamic Vinaigrette. One word: Delicious. Recipes for both below.

Wild Caught Grilled Salmon Steaks

3-4 salmon steaks (have your butcher fillet and skin the fish, we had ours cut into 3 inch thick steaks)

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

To taste: Creole seasoning, salt, cracked black pepper

Directions

1. Transfer steaks to large baking sheet and coat pieces with olive oil, vinegar and seasonings. Allow salmon to marinade for about 10 minutes.

2. Prepare grill and using a grilling rack place steaks over hot coals and grill for about 3-5 minutes on each side using tongs to turn the steaks.

3. Salmon should be barely op ague when done.

4. Be sure not to over cook your salmon steaks. You can always pop them in the oven if they are not fully done to your taste but once they are overcooked there is no return.
