Grilled Lemon Salmon - #EasyEats

You have heard it over and over, salmon is so good for you. Okay, I got it. But how should you prepare it?

Lemon and salmon just seem to naturally go together. This grilled lemon salmon recipe is quick and easy and you probably have most, if not all, of the ingredients already at home. Pair it with a bag of steamed vegetables and you are done. The most difficult part of this recipe is removing the skin from the salmon, which is not even that difficult. Check out the video below of our CobornsDelivers meat and seafood expert, Jayne, as she shows you how to remove the skin.

Now all there is to do is grill the salmon, serve with some blanched asparagus or a steamed veggie and a bottle of Riesling and enjoy!
