Another weekend, another barbecue. This meal was made last week and is another Weight Watchers friendly dish that I found to be sweet and savory altogether. Marinated in honey and orange juice, this made for one delicious and flavorful honey seared salmon even the kids would love.
Salmon is such a delicious fish, full of flavor and contains those good Omega 3’s we all need. Like tilapia, salmon is quite versatile and can be used for baking, grilling, shredding for tacos and other culinary creations. For the most part, we wrap it up in a foil pack and cook it on the grill with our favorite veggies and seasoning. This one was a bit different and came out fantastic.

You can also grill it on the barbecue by placing the salmon in a foil pack and pouring some of the marinade on top. Seal the foil pack and grill 6-8 minutes over medium high heat.
