Grilled Sesame Ginger Salmon ~ are marinated with fresh lemon juice and olive oil, then topped with a sprinkle of toasted sesame ginger seasonings and grilled to perfection, makes dinner come together in a snap! Simple, easy and delicious!
The other day we posted our orzo salad made with radishes, cucumbers and tomatoes in a light champagne vinaigrette and promised to post the grilled sesame ginger salmon as well.
So here it is!
The weather has been warming up here in the South. And dining al-fresco has been long over due! This is a very simple recipe for grilled salmon, virtually effortless! Depending how you prefer your salmon steak, rare or well done, could take anywhere from 3 to 6 minutes on the grill.
As you marinate the salmon, you can prepare the sides you want to serve it with.
We highly recommend our Orzo Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette as it compliments the salmon very nicely and it makes it a complete dinner. Adding the Asian seasonings to the salmon was a good choice. It gave them their amazing flavors, and made this a mouth-watering meal. Both together were so good!
Have a great weekend everyone! Enjoy!
