After living in California for 2 years, buying a grill was more than just a little overdue. I absolutely love how food tastes when cooked directly on a flame and the uncertainty of cooking directly on fire makes everything a little bit more exciting. Plus, I’ve never been a huge fan of super fancy meals with exotic ingredients and preparations. My idea of the perfect meal is extremely simple, prepared and cooked as naturally as possible. Lightly seasoning a piece of fresh meat or fresh and throwing it on the grill, is to me, heaven.

This Simply Grilled Salmon is just that, simple, both in its flavors and preparation.

I love serving it with a side of greens. In this case, I made asparagus but it’s also delicious with my garlicky greens.
