Grilled Salmon Honey Mustard Glaze – As summer approaches, we tend to break out the grill and cook big hunks of meat, chicken, and seafood. Grilling for some is a year-round experience, although summer is unofficially the start of Grilling Season.
Most men are much more comfortable working in front of a hot grill, rather than a hot stove. Here is a quick & easy Grilled Salmon recipe, with a glaze made of mustard and honey. It won’t take a lot of time and it will be pleasing to your guests.
Grilled Salmon Steak vs Salmon Filet
A fish steak is cut crosswise (perpendicular to the spine), cutting through the bone, whereas a fillet is cut lengthwise parallel to the bone. Can you buy boneless salmon steaks? Depending on where you buy your fish, yes. But as a general rule, salmon steaks have more (and larger) bones than fillets.
Salmon steaks are cross-cut pieces of fish with a piece of the spine in the middle and several smaller pin bones.
- 1 one salmon filet for each person.
- Salt & pepper to taste
Simple Honey Mustard Glaze
- 1/4 cup Honey
- 1/4 cup Dijon Mustard
- 1 tsp Chili Powder, any flavor
- Pre heat your grill on medium high
- Season the salmon with salt & pepper. (Always season whatever you are going to cook on the grill)
- In a bowl, whisk the mustard with the honey and chili powder. Set aside, along with a basting brush.
- Before placing salmon on the grill, use your basting brush to put the glaze on the fish side.
- Place fish on the preheated grill, fish side on grill first, at a 45 degree angle to the grill grate.
- Turn the fish over with skin side down on the grill. Cook the skin side about 2-3 minutes.
- Turn the fish over to the other side (skin side up). Gently pull the skin off with a pair of tongs.
- Baste liberally, both front and back, which will impart the flavor of the glaze
- The fish should flake easily with a fork when fully cooked. Cook salmon for 6 to 8 minutes per side overall.
Easy prep, easy grill, delicious result. Enjoy!
