This Spicy Korean Grilled Salmon is a quick and easy way to prepare fish, packed with spice and umami. Perfect for a lazy summer night.
I used to be intimidated at the thought of cooking fish at home. Over the years, I’ve learned how to prepare fish in a healthy and delicious way, and discovered how quick and easy it is. Fish is actually just as versatile as chicken once you get over the fear factor. It can be grilled, baked, steamed, and stir-fried.
Grilled salmon is one of my favorite during the summer – salmon is naturally high in heart healthy fat and stays nice and moist when cooked properly.
If you’re worried about the fish sticking to your grill, place the fish on a lightly greased piece of foil and put this directly on the grill. You don’t even have to turn the fish over if you cover the grill during cooking time. There’s no cleanup afterwards either.
I’m adding this Spicy Korean Grilled Salmon to my growing collection of fish recipes.
Note: Be sure to read the label on the gochujang container as some brands contain wheat.
