Grilled Salmon and Rice

Fresh salmon is one of my favorite meals to eat! It’s full of omega 3’s (which help decrease inflammation) and it’s a great source of potassium - so it’s an incredibly nutrient dense source of protein! Salmon is one of those foods that tastes great no matter how you cook it - grilled, smoked, baked, etc. Serve with a side of brown rice for vitamins and fiber, or on a bed of spinach to get your greens in! Cooking tip: you’ll know when your salmon is fully cooked by flaking a piece off with your fork. Salmon continues to cook once it’s off the heat, so I like to take mine off the grill a couple minute early to prevent it from overcooking.Recipe & Photography by: April Hamilton
