Grilled BBQ Salmon and Asparagus Recipe

Salmon is one of the my favorite dishes to grill.  I highly recommend to my clients that they eat less red meat and more fish because it is a lean meat which is high in protein, packed full of omega-3’s  and high in vitamin D.  Not to mention, if you are trying to shed some unwanted fat quickly fish is the way to go.  This is quick and easy, so get to it y’all……..


-8 oz of wild caught salmon

-3 tablespoons of your favorite BBQ sauce

-1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

Heat your grill to a medium heat.  Place the salmon filet on a large sheet of aluminum foil.  Spread the olive oil over the fillet as well as the BBQ sauce.  Seal the foil completely and place on the grill.  Cook on medium heat for approximately 10-12 minutes or until flaky, but pink on the inside.


-10 asparagus stalks (cut or break about an inch off the bottom)

-1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

-1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar

-1 tablespoon of pepper

-1 tablespoon of Mrs Dash Garlic and Herb Seasoning

Lay the stalks flat on a plate, drizzle the olive oil and balsamic vinegar evenly and top with pepper and seasoning.  Place directly on the grill, flip once for approximately 5 minutes.

Voila!!!!  You have one quick and easy, healthy dish packed with omega-3’s, protein and fiber.  Not to mention, the fishy smell is outdoors since you cooked it on the grill:).
