Grilled fish (and some other yummy stuff)

Today, I successfully grilled some beautiful (on-sale-at-Kroger) salmon fillets.

This is a milestone of sorts. Usually , my efforts at grilling fish are an absolute disaster. So much so that I had pretty much given up trying.

But, as we get older, we become more cognizant of needing to eat more fish and chicken. And since grilling is my main method of preparing food… time to have another go at it.

Thanks to our good friend Google, the fact that lemon and olive oil are a perfect marinade for about any non-beef meat, and my trusty Lodge Logic grill, the salmon turned out just fine.

The horiatiki salad (with veggies from the T’afia farmer’s market) and the Dry Comal Creek Savignon Blanc were the perfect complements. MMMMMM…. healthy, glycemic-index-friendly dining doesn’t have to be a drag! Not at all.

The BIG indulgence later is likely to be some Greek yogurt (no sugar added — sour, by sugary American standards) and honey…. MMMM!

    Aw, man. I’m CRAVING some of the lemon custard gelato mentioned here:

    What to do, what to do. I may have to give into these serious cravings.

  • Callie is known to deviate from the glycemic-index-friendly diet.

  • HAH! We have just got back from Kroger and John is about to grill me some of the same salmon! Glad to hear it’s good. John is having a ribeye steak — it’s on sale this week.

  • And we’re drinking the Salud! Winery Chemin Blanc. It’s delicious. We should go back there. The place always looks so empty.

    I have NOT eaten 8 lbs. of Reese’s pieces in the last two months!!!

  • Mmmmmmm, Greek yogurt and honey. =)

  • Last night I had grilled pork chops and fresh vegetables. Saturday I had a London Broil that was "grass fed". Supposedly grass fed beef is better.

    I also made some red beans and brown rice and am going to add some grilled shrimp and scallops to them to make a jambalaya of sorts.

    Back on topic: Like you I’m not a fish griller. I do like the broiler however.

  • I haven’t had much luck grilling fish either. Shrimp, however, is another story. The other night we did 20 or so shrimp in four marinades:

    1. Olive oil and Sriracha chili sauce

    2. Olive oil, sesame oil, garlic and ginger

    3. Olive oil, lemon juice and fresh rosemary

    4. Italian dressing

    Good stuff!
