Simple Grilled Salsa Salmon with Asparagus and Cherry Tomatoes


Salmon is a delicious and healthy meal choice.  It is loaded with omega 3 fatty acids, protein, vitamins & minerals.  This low fat fish has countless health benefits and is simple to prepare. This easy, grilled recipe requires almost no prep time and is a favorite at our house.  We usually serve this with grilled asparagus, another family favorite.  These two recipes are nice to combine if you have a two tier grill.  You can cook them simultaneously and they are a spectacular combination!


Grilled Salsa Salmon



  • Salmon Fillet  ~ We prefer fresh and without bones. 
  • Salsa ~ When available, homemade is great.  This time we used store bought.
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • aluminum Foil

Fold a large piece of foil in half to accommodate the size of your salmon fillet.  Use enough so that you are able to create a 2" lip to catch drippings.  Rub foil with olive oil.  Place fillets skin down on foil, close lid and grill at medium low heat @ 275 degrees for about 15-20 minutes, checking periodically. 

Once the edges of skin begin to blacken and salmon appears to be almost cooked through, add salsa to the top and continue to cook for another 5-10 minutes.

  • 1 lb fresh asparagus
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan
  • 1 tbsp garlic
  • aluminum foil

Fold a large piece of foil in half to accommodate the size of your asparagus spears.  Use enough so that you are able to create a 2" lip to catch drippings.  Drizzle asparagus with olive oil.  Sprinkle with garlic and Parmesan and top with cherry tomatoes.  Place on the top grill rack and periodically turn spears as salmon is cooking below.
