Recipe Idea: South Beach Grilled Salmon
Hey there. Don here, telling you about some fabulous South Beach Grilled Salmon.
I love fish, especially salmon. And I love to eat, but I want to maintain my weight. So when the trouser waist starts to get a bit snug I reach for The South Beach Diet cookbook by Arthur Agatston. The recipes in this cookbook are delicious, and I am easily able to lose weight when I follow the plan.
Salmon is one of those fish we can buy frozen that tastes remarkably like the fresh version; so we always have it on hand. This recipe is delightful cooked on our grill.
We have a Char-Broil Classic 4-Burner Gas Grill. It works well and we love it. Grilling keeps the heat out of the kitchen and the food tastes so good. Don’t you agree?
Salmon has become a summer staple whether or not I’m doing the South Beach Diet regimen. We have a rosemary bush in our garden. They are easy to tend and the fresh leaves add so much flavor to dishes such as this one. Note: Usually the salmon will grill nicely with out turning. Watch it closely as it gets near being done. If you let it go too long, it will be dry and not delicately moist.
