I am so glad it is finally warm enough to fire up the grill. I have missed it so much. We used to grill year round, since we live in the South, but the last couple of years it has been really cold here and we just haven’t used the grill as much. But, finally some warm weather hit and it was time to remove the cover, fill the tank and fire it up!!
The great folks at Schwan’s sent us some Salmon to try out, they sure do have perfect timing!
And it sure did hit the spot!
If you have never tried Schwan’s I think the time to do so is now! They have such a great variety. AND they deliver right to your door. This salmon comes individually wrapped in vacuum sealed packages, 8 pieces per box. And tastes fresh! These heart-healthy, wild-caught Alaskan Salmon fillets are frozen the minute they are caught for freshness you can taste! Versatile and easy to prepare—whether you bake, broil or grill. Individually wrapped, so it can be dinner for one fish lover or a whole school of them. There wasn’t a bite left by the time this crowd got done. Even if you aren’t sure how to fix something, they have some great recipes! They have a Grilled Salmon & Portabella with Vinaigrette recipe that looks wonderful but when I went to the store to get the portabella’s they were none to be found so I went to work…
…and here is what I came up with. Let’s get to grillin’! First off gather up your ingredients. You are going to need some Salmon, rice vinegar, orange juice, maple syrup, salt and white pepper.
Mix the rice vinegar, maple syrup and orange juice together.
Place the Schwan’s Salmon in a resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over it. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
Save the marinade.
Grill over medium heat for approx. 6 minutes per side. This is going to vary, depending on the size and thickness of your fillets. You know it is done when it gets “flaky”. We used some Reynolds grill sheets on one side of the grill and used a special grate on the other. Both worked just fine. Just make sure to spray with some cooking oil spray to help keep the salmon from sticking and making it easier to turn. Also, when you turn it, baste it with some of the marinade. Mmmm!
Sprinkle with a little salt and white pepper and you are ready to eat!
