Outdoor Grilled Wild King Salmon Recipe

For those who enjoy salmon, king salmon, also known as Chinook salmon, is the biggest of the Pacific salmon. The hue of these fish ranges from reddish-orange to pinkish-red to practically white. The colour of the fish, unlike certain fruits and vegetables, does not signify distinct nutrients or variable amounts of nutrients. All king salmon is high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, which can help protect your heart and circulatory system.

This recipe demonstrates how simple it is to boost food flavour by increasing the surface area exposed to heat. Small, lean, and thin slices of meat cook rapidly on the grill, reducing the danger of burning and charring. As a result, the danger of carcinogens being generated during the grilling process is reduced.

1/4 cup coarsely diced white portion of leeks

1 whole lemon, zested 1/2 teaspoon fresh garlic, coarsely chopped

a half teaspoon of salt
