Grilled Smoked Almond Salmon

1 Apr

This marinate gives the salmon sweet and smokey flavor. For the spice lovers, I might through in some red pepper flakes in to the mix.  I grilled pineapple with the fish and it was excellent pairing.

  • salmon fillet
  • 1/4 cup crushed almonds
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 3 gloves of garlic, pressed
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbs low sodium gluten free soy sauce

Mix the crushed almonds and rest of the seasoning. Place in a zip-lock bag. Put the salmon in the bag, shake to evenly coat salmon. Marinate in the fridge 10-15 minutes, skin side down. Heat the grill medium high. Place the salmon on foil. Grill about 1o minutes. Meanwhile cook rest of the marinate 2 minutes. Plate the salmon, pour the sauce over the fish.
