This seafood recipe calls for simple ingredients, yet oozes with delectable goodness.

Nothing can beat firing up the grill and throwing a backyard BBQ party. Since I’ve been put in charge of the grill here at home (hubby lets me do my thing), I am taking advantage of the opportunity to make something a little healthier than usual.

Grilling salmon is easy, but it has tricks. Buy salmon with skin for grilling to keep the flesh intact and prevent it from falling through the grates.

The Secret to Perfectly Grilling Salmon

Preheat the grill thoroughly. Oil the grates to prevent salmon from sticking. Fish is delicate, so handle grilling with care.

A great marinade elevates grilled salmon. My recipe includes soy sauce, sugar, garlic, and onion powder for irresistible flavor.

In a medium bowl, whisk in oil, soy sauce, water, garlic and onion powder, brown sugar, hot sauce, and white pepper. Stir until thoroughly combined.

Drench the salmon in the marinade, seal the bowl (or ziplock bag), and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Drain. Brush the salmon lightly with the oil, then season with salt and pepper, followed by Creole seasoning.

Marinate the Salmon

Grilled salmon is one of the easiest dishes you can prepare given a short time. And it’s undeniably healthy and delicious, too.
