Easy Grilled Salmon

Grilled Salmon

This past Memorial Day weekend I wanted to grill up something different that I have never done on the grill before.  Salmon was on sale so I decided to give that a try on the grill.

I wanted a simple recipe so I decided on a just 3 ingredients garlic, butter, and Old Bay Seasoning.  I have always been afraid to grill salmon, but it turns out that if you leave the skin on it is really simple to grill.  It only takes about 10 to 12 minutes.

From now on I will be grilling my Salmon, it was very flavorful and super moist.  I was unable to stop eating it.


• 2 pounds of Salmon, skin on

• 2 cloves of garlic

• Butter

• Old Bay Seasoning

Items used to make this recipe

• Gas Grill

• Spatula

• Knife

• Garlic Press

• Oil

Grilled Salmon - Ingredients


1. This is very simple.  First spread some butter onto each Salmon Fillet.

2. Next press some garlic onto each fillet.

3.  Finally, sprinkle on some Old Bay Seasoning.  That’s it pretty easy!

4. Now you want to have your grill at medium high heat.  Make sure your grill grates are oiled well.  Now place your Salmon on the grill and close the lid.  It should take about 10 to 12 minutes to grill your Salmon.  But you can check for doneness by taking the temperature of each fillet.  They should be at 140 degrees, and flake easily with a fork.

Mmmm, there we go some perfectly grilled Salmon!  Super moist and tasty!

Another great Salmon recipe to make is Candied Salmon. This recipe is sweet and very tasty and doesn’t require a grill.

Baked Parmesan Crusted Catfish

This is only my second time ever making Catfish but after making this recipe.  I will be making this recipe more often.  This was a very easy recipe to put together and came out excellent.  I was savoring each bite.  I found this recipe at a Land Big Fish and would highly recommend it.

• 1/4 Cup Butter

• 1 Clove Garlic

Items used to make this recipe

Baked Parmesan Crusted Catfish - Ingredients


1. OK, now in the first mixing bowl we want to mix together the parmesan cheese, flour, salt, black pepper, and paprika.

2. In the second bowl mix together the egg and the milk well.

3. Next, get out your baking sheet.  Line it with aluminum foil and spray it with cooking spray so the fish won’t stick.

4. Now, we are ready to start breading the fish.  First get a catfish fillet and dip it into the egg mixture.  Make sure to cover the fish well.  Then take it to the flour mixture and make sure to get the fish covered well and then place on your baking sheet.  Repeat for each fillet.

5. OK now it is time to make the garlic butter.  In a small skillet melt the butter and press your garlic clove into the butter.  Saute it for about 2 to 3 minutes.  Then drizzle your garlic butter onto the Catfish fillets.

6. Now bake the Catfish at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until Catfish is white and flaky.  The last 5 minutes I turned up the oven to 400 to really get them crispy.

On some of the fillets I guess I had a bit to much breading cause it did not cook up all the way.  But it did not affect the Catfish one bit.  This was some of the best fish I have ever had it was very moist and had a great flavor to it.

Candied Salmon

This recipe will be the first one that I use that some one else has created.  And they have created an awesome recipe at that.  Below I will show how I made the recipe, and also any modifications that I made to it.  You can check out the original recipe for candied salmon by going to AllRecipes.com.  Now I am always nervous trying out a new recipe, but this one came out so tasty and good that I can not wait to make it again.  I hope salmon is on sale next week!  I sort of cut this recipe in half cause it seemed like there was quite a bit of onion being used and that just seemed like way to much.  But after eating it I can see how you would want to have alot of onions with this one.

4. Next put your garlic into the garlic press and squeeze it through.  Spread some garlic onto each tilapia filet.

5.  Finally sprinkle some Old Bay seasoning onto each tilapia filet.

6. Get some more foil and place it over the fish and make like a little pouch for the fish to be in.  This sort of steams them and keeps them moist.

7. Now place the tilapia into the oven for 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

After the 15 minutes are up, remove the fish from the oven.  Generally, you can tell if tilapia is ready to eat if it has turned all white and is flaky. Furthermore, you can use a meat thermometer to make sure they have arrived at the proper temperature, which is 140 to 150 degress.

I served up the baked tilapia with a Red Pepper rice creation that I like to make. This was a great, fast dinner to make and it was very tasty.
