Grilled Salmon with Lime and Steamed Vegetables

Perfectly grilled salmon with veggiesSalmon is one of my favorite fish types because of its taste and ease of cooking. There are so many health benefits associated with it. Here in New Delhi, we cannot get fresh Salmon, but the frozen ones are good enough to get the best results. I generally prefer grilled Salmon with different marinades. Today, I'm going the share my simplest yet extremely tasty grilled Salmon recipe. To get the best results, you need a charcoal based griller that gives a smoky flavor to the fish. If you do not have one, regular electric griller or microwave can be used, but you won't get the unique flavor that only comes when it is cooked on a charcoal fire. So let's get started and see how to make this simple, tasty and filling recipe.
