At La Biznaga, Fernando López Velarde creates untraditional dishes that nod to local flavors. Here, for instance, he grills salmon until the fish is crackling-crisp, then tops it with a wonderfully bright pesto he makes with cilantro—a staple of Mexican cuisine—in place of the usual basil.
This healthy and lean protein is packed with nutrition and is easy to grill. Not only is salmon high in omega-3 fatty acids, it is an excellent source of vitamin B12, vitamin D and selenium. Here are a a few of our favorite grilled recipes that include grilled salmon with melted tomatoes and honey-mustard-glazed salmon steaks. Fire up the grill and try these dishes at your next barbecue.
