Sockeye Salmon Will Be Grilled Tonight!

It’s July! It’s hot and humid outside! It’s time for fresh "wild caught” Alaskan Grilled Sockeye Salmon for dinner! My local grocery store (Big Y) is featuring this delicious, healthy, colorful fish in the Seafood Dept. Last Friday at dinnertime we enjoyed this very tasty dinner and tonight will be a repeat. Yummy!

The preparation is so easy. Neither fancy sauces nor salty additions are needed to accent the taste of this scrumptious fish. A metal grilling basket or container is needed. It prevents the fillet from dropping down into the grill. :)

Grilled Sockeye Salmon

  • Spray grilling basket (container) with PAM.
  • Heat grill.
  1. On a large dish pour about 2 TBS. Olive Oil.
  2. Sprinkle a little Paprika on top.
  3. Rinse a Salmon Fillet in running cold water, place on the Olive Oil/Paprika.
  4. Turn the fish over to coat the skin side.
  5. Place the Salmon Fillet in grilling basket on grill.
  6. Half way through, turn over and grill the other side.
  7. Enjoy!
  • The amount of needed grilling time depends on the size of the piece of salmon and the grill.
  • A 1 lb. piece requires 5 – 7 minutes on each side.
*** Note: With our grill we usually grill each side 7 minutes. The 1 lb. fillet is usually thick.

A microwaved “Baked Potato” and Sauteed Combo served along with Grilled Sockeye Salmon is a meal we enjoy often during the hot summer months. With the local Zucchini available at our roadside stands, it’s great to eat these colorful prepared fresh veggies.

This is another family favorite that I posted almost two years ago and we still enjoy this scrumptious dinner! I wait for our local grocery to have a special on this “Wild Caught” fish.

Do you/your family enjoy fish? Do you prepare it at home? Do you like Alaskan Sockeye Salmon?  It’s easy to prepare and tasty to eat!
