So we have definitely been lacking sunshine and warm temperatures here in New Hampshire this year. Now it seems as though spring has finally sprung! That is why, when the opportunity presented itself for some grilling time, I took it! You can too by making this easy and delicious grilled salmon recipe! So cumin and have some grilled salmon!

Salmon with the bright summery flavor of lime. Seasoned with butter, garlic and cumin, this salmon recipe brings life to your barbecue! Side your fish with lemon basmati rice and asparagus for the perfect trio!

Salmon is always a good choice when grilling, it has a meatier texture and like swordfish, it stands up well on the grill. Unlike the skimpier varieties like sole or tilapia, the fish holds together well when cooked, and without the use of tin foil.

When cooking fish on the barbecue, I always use a grilling pan to avoid those “oops!” moments of pieces of your fish falling through the grates and into the flames. Loving seafood the way I do, I am not about to let that happen! Happy grilling!!
