Unlike the “Atlantic salmon” you see in most inland stores, 99.8% of which is farmed, true “Alaskan salmon” is caught wild, which means the fish have lived free and fed on clean substances. It tastes better, and is a whole lot better for you. Here’s just one of the ways we North Americans love to eat this tasty, fleshy, and fragrant-on-the-grill wild fish, a huge American favorite main entree: Grilled Wild Alaskan Salmon.
Grilled Wild Alaskan Salmon Recipe-
- 2 tbsp. celery seeds
- 1 tbsp. paprika
- 1 tbsp. ground nutmeg
- 1 tbsp. chili powder
- 1 tbsp. garlic powder
- 1 tbsp. onion powder
- 2 tbsp. dried marjoram
- 1 tbsp. kosher salt
- 1-1/2 tbsp. light brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. freshly ground black peppercorns
- scallion infused olive oil
- 2 fillets of Alaskan wild-caught salmon, each 2-3 pounds
- Start your grille, and heat it to medium-high temperature.
- In a mixing bowl, combine all the spices thoroughly.
- Generously rub the spice mixture on the flesh side of the salmon and drizzle each fillet with a light coat of oil.
- Place the salmon fillets on the grill, flesh side down. Grill for 6 to 8 minutes, then flip the fillets over and grill for another 7 to 8 minutes.
Serve your Grilled Wild Alaskan Salmon immediately, while still nice and hot.
