This recipe proves that grilled salmon sounds more complicated than it is. Because this pink fish is flavorful on its own (thanks to those healthy fats!), you need only three other ingredients to make it shine: liquid seasoning, calamansi, and black pepper. Pro tip: focus on cooking it properly to keep it from drying out.
Make several grilled salmon steaks in advance and keep them chilled for future meals. Have them with grains, like brown rice, quinoa, or adlai for a hearty and filling meal. You can also pair them with roasted veggies or a side salad for a lighter lunch. Or, copy viral TikTok videos and shred your leftovers, add them to a bowl of rice with various condiments, and wrap each bite in nori sheets.
This salmon recipe is ideal for busy days – however you want to enjoy it!
