Grilled Chipotle-Lime Wild Alaskan Salmon

This weekend our Costco had fresh wild Alaskan sockeye salmon for $9.99/lb. That is an awesome deal. Even though I've frozen a bunch already, I love to prepare it from its fresh, never frozen state. I wanted to keep it simple and change it up just a bit (to keep hubby from tiring of it). I could eat it EVERY single day! I made enough so I can have it for my lunch the next couple of days. I served it alongside a fresh green salad and it was the perfect meal for these hot and humid dog days of summer we've been experiencing. This morning it was 73 when we woke up and 97% humidity which is nothing but gross. I snapped a few photos of this evening's delicious grilled Chipotle-Lime Salmon. Those two flavors go excellent together. I only lightly dusted the salmon the ground chipotle and seasoned it with sea salt and topped the fillets with thinly sliced lime to cook. About half way through the 10-12 minute grilling, I squeezed fresh lime juice over the fillets. They turned out so good. I used my Lodge grill pan on top of my grill to make sure I didn't lose a single bite of salmon falling through the grates. Check out the easy peasy recipe below as well as the photos. Enjoy!

Grilled Chipotle-Lime Wild Alaskan Salmon


2 pounds wild salmon fillets
Sea salt, to taste
Ground Chipotle Powder
1 fresh lime, thinly sliced
Olive oil or olive oil spray to lightly grease grill


Rinse and pat salmon fillets dry with paper towels. Cut into portions to fit on grill or grill pan. Lightly oil grill pan or grates. Heat grill to about 400 degrees F (medium-hot). Season salmon with salt, chipotle (lightly dust) and top with lime slices. Place on grill pan or grill grates, skin side down. Cover grill and cook for 10-12 minutes, depending on thickness. About half way through cooking, squeeze with fresh lime juice, if desired.
