1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

¼ tsp coarsely ground pepper

¼ tsp garlic salt

2 (6 oz.) salmon steaks (½ inch thick)

Cooking spray


  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl; brush mixture over fish.
  2. Coat clean grill rack with cooking spray; place on grill over medium-hot coals (350-400).  Place fish on rack; grill, covered 2-3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  3. Serve immediately.  Pair with orzo pasta and your favorite fresh veggies for a complete meal.  If you aren’t a salmon fanatic, the marinade can also be used on chicken breasts or lean pork.
