It's Time...

A wonderful sight!
to heat the outdoor grill!!!  Definitely my kind of week!  My lavender crocuses are blooming beyond their boundaries in our front yard - into the grass.  That sure brings a  :-) .  Our outdoor temperature read 68°F on Thursday!  Grilled Sockeye Salmon tastes divine in March!  It did not take long to venture over to the Big Y our grocery store to purchase "wild caught" Sockeye Salmon!  It's easy to prepare!  It's quick and it's definitely Yummy!

Grilled Sockeye Salmon

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.

During the colder months I do bake Salmon, but we prefer Grilled Sockeye Salmon.  Seafood is GREAT!

We usually grill fish, your salmon looks good. I need to get one of those baskets. So nice to see signs of spring!

Love salmon on the grill and that basket is so useful; I also grill vegetables in there.

Carol- The grilling basket was purchased at Home Goods a few years ago. I see them often.

Rita- We enjoyed it so much that when today's temps were in the low 70's°F we had Grilled Salmon for dinner, again! WooHoo!
