About the Recipe
Super tasty grilled salmon that can be made indoors or outdoors, paired with marinated greens. An insanely delicious satisfying meal.
1 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise
2 red, orange and/or yellow bell peppers, trimmed, halved and seeded
1 medium red onion, cut into 1-inch wedges
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon salt, divided
½ teaspoon ground pepper
1 ¼ pounds salmon fillet, cut into 4 portions
¼ cup thinly sliced fresh basil
1 lemon, cut into 4 wedges
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Brush zucchini, peppers and onion with oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle salmon with pepper and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Place the vegetables and the salmon pieces, skin-side down, on the grill. Cook the vegetables, turning once or twice, until just tender and grill marks appear, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Cook the salmon, without turning, until it flakes when tested with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes.
When cool enough to handle, roughly chop the vegetables and toss together in a large bowl. Remove the skin from the salmon fillets (if desired) and serve alongside the vegetables. Garnish each serving with 1 tablespoon basil and serve with a lemon wedge.
