Grilled Salmon and Asparagus

Making this dinner could not get any easier. And it’s good for you. Doesn’t taste so bad either. Try it out.

Just like we buy a huge bag of frozen chicken at Costco, we do the same for salmon. The hardest part of this meal is remembering to thaw it in the morning for dinner that night.

Start by making the marinade:

1 chopped green onion
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon ginger powder

Once it’s done, pour about 3/4 of the mixture into a large freezer bag and add four pieces of salmon. Shake it around a little bit, then put it all in the fridge. The best part is that the salmon are ready to grill in only fifteen minutes. Talk about a quick last minute dinner!

While the salmon is marinating, I washed the asparagus and cut the ends of off each of them. I put them all in a different freezer bag and drizzled in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. No measuring, just pour it in there. I shook it around and let it sit for about ten minutes, turning them after five.

Next, fire up the grill!

Dan cooked the salmon for about fifteen minutes total.

The asparagus cooked pretty quick, you’ll only need about five minutes, so put that on the grill last. Just put it directly on top of the grill grates.

Once the salmon and asparagus are done, serve immediately.
