Salmon is one of my very favorite proteins and is a great alternative when I am sick of chicken. I know that a lot of people shy away from cooking fish. I am here to tell you that it is SO simple! I buy frozen salmon fillets from Costco. They are individually wrapped, skinless, and the perfect portion! If you don’t have a Costco Membership, don’t worry! I’ve found them at most other stores, too. I’ve also tried tilapia, if you want a cheaper option.
Here is the simplest of recipes. Let me know what you think!
- 2 salmon fillets (frozen)
- Avocado or olive oil
- 1 large orange, sliced
- 1/2 yellow onion, sliced
- Lemon juice (fresh), to taste
- Lemon pepper, to taste
- Salt, to taste
- Preheat grill to medium high. Layer orange slices and onions on foil. Top with salmon. Brush oil on fish and sprinkle with seasoning. Close foil, tightly. Grill until internal temp reaches 145 degrees, about 5 minutes on each side.
- Once cooled, squeeze fresh lemon (or orange) on top.
