Summer is the time for grilling but this recipe can be made any time of the year on an indoor or outdoor grill, an electric grilling machine or in a broiler. This is an easy and light meal! Simply grill your salmon, serve with the pasta (try our Pesto Pasta), and add some grilled asparagus (or vegetable of your choice) if you like. This meal is very nutritious with the pasta, fresh salmon, and any grilled vegetables you add.
How do you pick the right salmon with so many labels to read? Buy wild salmon whenever possible. All Alaskan salmon are wild-caught so this is the best choice. You can be sure these salmon get a varied diet, ample space to swim, and are healthy.
Buying salmon labeled as “organic” means that they are farm raised and not wild caught. If you don’t buy fresh salmon, choose frozen or canned wild salmon, which can be a great economical choice. Thaw frozen salmon in the refrigerator overnight for dinner the next day. More information on buying salmon can be found at: Eating Well.
Servings: serves 4-6
