1-2-3 Grilled Salmon for Two Recipe

1-2-3 Grilled Salmon for Two Recipe

“I love salmon, but my husband doesn't. So I combined flavors I knew he liked to create this recipe, and now it's the only salmon recipe he will eat. It’s so easy and only requires a handful of ingredients." —Nicole Clayton, Prescott, Arizona
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 5 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried minced garlic
  • 2 salmon fillets (5 ounces each)

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the oil, soy sauce, mustard and garlic. Pour half of marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Add the salmon; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Refrigerate remaining marinade.
