This is my favorite easy salmon recipe. When I say simple recipe…it’s simple and has very little clean up! It’s a great summer flavor, zesty and fresh!
Step 1: Catch your own fresh Alaskan salmon.
Just kidding, cooking fish doesn’t have to be hard! Foil is a huge time saver and there’s very little mess. After moving to Colorado from Alaska, I can’t tell you how many people tell me they don’t know how to cook salmon. It’s easy. Throw some dressing, salsa, lemon and oil, or whatever you like and wrap it up in foil. Grill or bake it. Done.
It doesn’t have to be fancy. Don’t let cooking fish intimidate you! You don’t want to miss out on salmon’s omega 3s, lean protein and healthy fat. The American Heart Association encourages eating fish at least twice a week!
