When it comes to choosing what goes on your grill, think beyond the burger this summer.

Cooking out is a great way to spend more time outside, and it offers a range of options for eating healthy. Try this protein-packed and heart-healthy salmon recipe next time you fire up the grill.

Ingredients

1 lime, juiced

2 cups honey

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 bunch cilantro, chopped

4 salmon steaks

salt and pepper as needed to taste

Directions

  1. Over medium heat, stir cilantro, garlic, honey and lime juice in a small saucepan. Heat for about 5 minutes until easily stirred. Remove marinade from heat and cool slightly.
  2. In a baking dish, season salmon with salt and pepper, then cover with marinade and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  3. Before grilling, oil your grill grate so the fish doesn’t stick. After placing marinated salmon on the grill, cook for five minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
