What a tasty dinner hubs and I had last night. My grill master of a husband did a fantastic job of grilling our bourbon glazed salmon perfectly. This is a super simple dinner for any night of the week with minimal clean up. I will let ya’ll in on a little secret too. I didn’t use a steamer for the broccoli but took a short cut and nuked it in the microwave for four minutes instead. So a good trick to remember, if you are ever in a hurry, the microwave will ‘steam’ broccoli. Woot!
Prepare your grill and once hot, place the corn on the grill. I suggest grilling for 20 – 30 minutes, checking periodically and turning. I also presoak the corn cobs for 30 minutes before grilling
I prepped our bourbon glazed salmon (picked up from Publix) with some cilantro, lemon and butter.
Tear off a piece of tin foil (I usually double it, so it doesn’t burn the fish) and place it shiny side down. (Little tip: the non shiny side helps reduce sticking.) Place two slices of lemon on the foil and top with a pad of butter then add the salmon. I added a few sprigs of cilantro for a little extra flavor. When everything is in place, make a tent and fold over the edges to encase all the steam.
Add the salmon foil packets to the grill and leave on for 10 minutes. Depending on the heat of the grill, it may require an extra five minutes or so.
While the grill is doing its thing, prep your fresh broccoli by cutting into pieces. Add to a glass dish with just enough water to cover the bottom. Dice up some pads of butter and add to the top. Squeeze 1/4 of a lemon over the top and grind fresh black pepper as well. Cook in the microwave for four minutes.
Careful opening the foil package after removing from the grill as the steam will be hot. Add butter, grated parmesan and a little salt and pepper to your corn for a tasty addition! Enjoy this fresh, healthy dinner and spice up your salmon with your own herbs and flavors if you prefer!!
