Whenever I make salmon this Sesame Grilled Salmon is my go-to recipe! It’s so fast but so flavorful. I love the coconut aminos in this recipe, it gives it just the right amount of sweet and salty jut like a soy based sauce but without the soy. When you are shopping for salmon, you want to look for wild caught. Wild caught fish is superior to farmed fish. I love grilling salmon, really I love barbecued anything. Chicken, beef, pork, vegetables. Barbecue makes everything taste better! It’s also awesome because you are outside, I even enjoy barbecuing in the dead of winter!
