Ingredients You Need

In a small bowl, add olive oil, lemon juice, smoked paprika, garlic and onion powders, salt and pepper. Whisk to combine.


In a shallow flat dish with edges, lay salmon slices and brush with marinade. Marinate from 10 minutes for up to 24 hours.


Preheat grill to high heat of 450-500 degrees F. Clean grill well and oil the grates. Place salmon on the grill skin side up, close the lid and grill for 4-5 minutes.


Check with a spatula – if salmon has nice grill marks and comes off the grill easily – you flip it. Cook uncovered for another 3-4 minutes.


Serve hot or cold on top of salad, with mango salsa or guacamole, or with brown rice or quinoa.


Refrigerate leftovers for up to 4 days in an airtight container of freeze leftover cooked salmon for up to 3 months in an airtight container.
