This is a pretty straight forward recipe. Salmon is one of my favorite types of fish because the flavor already stands alone…and if it’s seasoned properly you can make a basic salmon taste like a restaurant-quality salmon in no time!
I grilled yesterday and I really wanted to use the salmon I had just bought from Sprouts and also add a bunch of fresh ingredients on top of it. I think this is one of my favorite ways to make salmon.
- 5 cloves of garlic
- 1 whole tomato
- 2-4 slices of lemon
- lemon juice from the lemon ( squeezed)
- shallots ( it is a type of onion, similar to a red onion but a much better flavor). I find that cooking with shallots is much more enjoyable because for some reason, this onion tends to soak up flavorful meats easily.
- a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
Wrap your salmon in foil. Sprinkle some Cajun seasoning over it and a little pepper to taste. I also added crushed red pepper for heat!
I grilled it for a total of 10 minutes on low heat, minimal flame and allowed it to smoke. Then I opened the foil up for 2 more minutes- the juices from the salmon and the lemon just permeated! I highly recommend trying this!!
I had mine with some shish kabob and rice pilaf!
