a simple salmon

There are lots and lots of spectacular salmon recipes out there.  I have drooled and lusted over most every one, eagerly deciding that I will make each one.  And so, they quickly find themselves being pushed, shoved and crammed into my ever-growing “favorites box.”

And yet, time after time, I always find myself coming back to this single, tried and true, very (very!) simple recipe.

2 tsp. soy sauce.  sprinkle of garlic.  parsley. 2 lb. wild caught salmon.  


It makes me happy.

The sides are always kept just as simple, for simplicity’s sake.

1 bunch asparagus.  2 tsp olive oil.  sea salt and pepper.


Because, you know, sometimes you need to get all gussied up.  All fancy schmancy.  Ready for the red carpet.

And sometimes–most times--you just need to embrace simple.

Simple.  Delicious.  Simply delicious.

Simple Salmon

(Serves about 6)

  • 2 lb. wild caught salmon
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • garlic powder
  • parsley
  1. Heat the grill to medium.
  2. Drizzle soy sauce evenly over flesh side of salmon fillets.  Sprinkle liberally with garlic powder and parsley.  Place skin side down on grill and cook for 4-5 minutes.  Flip.  Continue cooking another 4-5 minutes.  Salmon is ready when it flakes easily.  Try to avoid overcooking, as this will dry out the end result!  Enjoy! 😀
