Happy Memorial Day! We want to share this recipe with you to throw on the grill or share with friends and loved ones. Salmon is a great source of protein that also provides our bodies with healthful fats like omega-3 fatty acids that are vital to play many roles in your body. Salmon also gives us other vitamins like B12 and vitamin D. Vitamin B12 nourishes the brain and nervous system while also helping create DNA. Vitamin D helps with calcium and phosphorus absorption and also boosts our mood. Being outside this weekend in the sun and eating a sweet and spicy grilled salmon will be a combo for happiness and nourishment!What You’ll Need:

  • 2 Tbsp hot sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp light mayo
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • ½ small red onion, sliced thinly
  • 4, 4-5 oz salmon filets

What To Do:

  1. Preheat the grill and in a small bowl, mix hot sauce, brown sugar, paprika, cayenne, and ginger.
  2. In a larger bowl mix the mustard, mayo and spices to make sauce for the salmon.
  3. Lay the salmon on the grill with salt and pepper sprinkled on top. Grill with skin-side up for about 3 minutes.
  4. Flip the salmon and brush with sauce. Cook for about 12-15 more minutes until it reaches 145 degrees. Brush the salmon with the sauce every few minutes.
  5. Once the filets are cooked through and glazed, serve and enjoy!
