Grilled Salmon with Sweet Jalapeño Glaze
Happy Tuesday! Just a super quick little post today to tell you guys about one of my favorite summer weeknight meals. Lots of readers seem to love my 5-minute prep Roasted Salmon with Spicy Apricot Glaze, as well as my salmon baked in oven and recipe for bourbon salmon so I knew I wanted to come up with a summertime version.
This Grilled Salmon with Sweet Jalapeño Glaze is also incredibly simple, healthful and absolutely delicious. Simple puree lime juice, molasses and a bit of fresh jalapeño into a sweet and spicy glaze. Then throw some salmon pieces on a hot grill. This recipe also works great with Chilean sea bass!
The most important thing to remember there is that the salmon will tell you when it’s ready to be flipped. If you try to flip it, and it sticks to the grill even a little, it’s not ready to be flipped. Give it a few minutes, then try it again – it should easily release when it’s ready.
