Grilling fish is not hard, it’s not complicated. It’s fish. Don’t over think it.
Some people fear grilling fish. They think it’s hard. They whine that it’s complicated. The fish sticks, it flakes apart, I don’t like onions. Wah. But I am hear to tell you, rub a little oil on that grate and get to grilling your fish. It’s not hard, it’s not complicated. It’s fish. Don’t over think it, and bring home the weeknight dinner victory with this Grilled Salmon with Brown Sugar Mustard Glaze.
The thing about seafood is, it’s simple. The flavors and textures are already there. It doesn’t take much work to prepare a satisfying delicious meal. In this case, a quick sear over the grill, the light flavor of the brown sugar mustard glaze, and a side salad turned a busy weeknight into a romantic date night dinner.
Grab the oil, light some candles. We’re grilling tonight.
