• 4 Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon filets (4-6 ounces per person)
• 1/4 cup organic extra virgin olive oil
• 3 tablespoons salmon marinade, made with garlic granules, onion granules, dried dill, lemon peel, fennel, black pepper and sea salt

For the best salmon (after Super Bowl Week), try the salmon from our friends at Vital Choice Seafood.

Simple Steps
1. Defrost salmon filets in refrigerator for a few hours or under cold running water
2. Make salmon marinate by mixing olive oil and salmon marinade
3. Pre-heat grill on medium high for 15 minutes before you are ready to grill your salmon
4. Place filets on grill
5. Cook each side about 5 minutes

7. Let salmon sit for about 5 minutes
8. Enjoy with steamed veggies or a raw kale salad, with a whole grain, such as quinoa
