Honey Hot Grilled Salmon and Rice
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.
