Spring has sprung in North Carolina and along with it temps dropping to freezing last night and predicted for tonight as well. Isn’t this just the way it works? Mother nature doing what she does. None the less we are enjoying spending time outdoors and grilling most of our meals.
My local grocery had some wild caught Alaskan salmon on sale and I couldn’t pass it up. As you might remember salmon is our favorite fish. What is your favorite fish to throw on the grill?
This is a recipe from the past but one of my all time favorites as it is super easy and delicious. The combo of sweet honey and peppery jalapeños make an excellent glaze for the fish. I like to toss a few fresh jalapeños on the grill to serve along with the meaty fish filets.
Honey-Jalapeno Glazed Salmon
4 salmon fillets
3 tbsp. honey
2 tsp. finely chopped, seeded jalapeño
1 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
4 jalapeños (to grill on the side)
Brush grill rack with a little oil. Lay salmon on grill racks, over medium high heat, skin side down. As salmon begins to cook spread a little glaze on each fillet. Continue brushing fish with glaze until salmon is opaque and cooked through. ( I do not flip my fish when grilling) . Toss a few seeded and split jalapeños on the side, grill until charred and serve with the fish.
