Grilled Salmon Bowl Recipe
This Grilled Salmon Bowl is the perfect healthy dinner that will leave you feeling way better than before you ate it. It starts with some perfectly grilled salmon. You can grill either outside or “grill” underneath the broiler in the oven. Then pile that salmon with some garlicky wilted kale, rice and your choice of pairings. This is the perfect spring or summer dinner that is also paleo-friendly, Whole30 and gluten and dairy-free.
Last year was my first year of joining a local CSA and frequenting my new town’s farmers markets. I came home week after week with incredible amounts of produce like this kale and garlic scapes, many of which at a loss of what to do with. (P.S. if you’re looking to save money eating organic, a CSA is an amazing resource). This year I’m working through all the different types of produce I take home to create into delicious meals that can be recreated by you.

How to Grill Salmon
There are two choices for grilling this salmon. The first is on a traditional grill outdoors. Though if that isn’t available to you, feel free to “grill” this under your broiler.
To “grill” fish in the oven: Place broiler on high. Place fish on a lined and greased baking sheet and broil for 7 to 9 minutes depending on the thickness of your fish. Add sesame seeds to garnish.
To grill on an outdoor grill: Grease grill and heat to medium. Place fish on a sheet of tin foil and cook for 8 to 10 minutes until fully cooked to your liking. Add sesame seeds to garnish.
