Lemon Garlic Grilled Salmon

Grilled salmon is a delicious and healthy meal that has become increasingly popular in recent years. Not only is it easy to prepare, but it also provides a great source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids, making it a healthy choice for anyone looking to maintain a balanced diet.

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients that our bodies need to function properly. Omega-3 fatty acids are particularly important for brain health, heart health, and reducing inflammation in the body.

In addition to being rich in nutrients, grilled salmon is also a great choice for anyone looking to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. Salmon is a low-calorie, high-protein food that can help you feel full and satisfied after eating.

There are several types of salmon available, each with its own unique flavor and texture. Here are some of the most common types of salmon:

  • Atlantic Salmon: Atlantic salmon is the most common type of salmon found in grocery stores. It has a mild flavor and a soft texture, making it a great choice for grilling. Our farmed Atlantic Salmon from Bakkafrost is an amazing, sustainable choice for Atlantic Salmon.
  • Pacific Salmon: Pacific salmon is another popular type of salmon. It has a more robust flavor than Atlantic salmon and a firmer texture, making it a great choice for grilling.
  • Chinook Salmon: Chinook salmon is also known as king salmon. It has a high fat content, which gives it a rich, buttery flavor. It's a great choice for grilling, but it can be more expensive than other types of salmon.
  • Coho Salmon: Coho salmon, also known as silver salmon, has a mild flavor and a delicate texture. It's a great choice for grilling, but it can be harder to find than other types of salmon.

Tips for Grilling Salmon

Grilling salmon can be intimidating, but with a few tips, you can easily master this delicious dish. Here are some tips for grilling salmon:

  • Preheat your grill: Before you start grilling, make sure your grill is preheated to the right temperature. For salmon, you want to grill it at medium-high heat.
  • Use a clean grill: Make sure your grill is clean before you start grilling. This will prevent your salmon from sticking to the grill and ensure that it cooks evenly.
  • Brush the salmon with oil: Brushing the salmon with oil before grilling will help prevent it from sticking to the grill.
  • Season the salmon: Season the salmon with salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you like before grilling.
  • Cook the salmon skin-side down: When you put the salmon on the grill, put it skin-side down. This will help prevent it from falling apart while cooking.
  • Don't overcook the salmon: Overcooked salmon can be dry and tough. When grilling salmon, cook it until it's just cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
