Grilled Salmon for a Crowd
Last Sunday, I hosted our annual “Four Fathers” Father’s Day BBQ. Since I was the only “vegan flirt” at the party, and was on a budget, I opted to serve grilled salmon and came up with this new recipe that was a HUGE hit! Originally I was going to serve Veggie Burgers, but this was honestly WAY more cost effective.
I always liked the seafood available at Costco – I am in the process of researching where they source theirs. I will let you know the details soon! In the meantime, enjoy this incredible salmon. I served it with Mango Salsa and green salad … what a great combination of flavours. Enjoy!
Grilled Salmon for a Crowd:
- 2 whole sides Salmon (I buy mine at Costco – abt. 20.00 for package with 2)
- 1/4 cup whole grain mustard
- 4 tbsp light soy or tamari sauce
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 2 tbsp peanut oil
- 1/4 cup REAL maple syrup
- handful chopped fresh parsley
- 2 green onions, chopped
- fresh cracked pepper and sea salt to taste
Cut salmon into 2 inch wide portions. Place salmon in large casserole dish or lasagna pan. In separate bowl, combine other ingredients. Pour over salmon, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or up to 8 hours ahead.
To grill –
Place salmon on preheated grill. Cook 3-5 minutes per side, depending on BBQ. Check for doneness by breaking piece off and looking at colour. Should flake easily and be a consistent colour. Remember, fish continutes to cook once removed from heat. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Serve with Mango Salsa
