TANGY GRILLED SALMON

This marinade could be used for any fish, chicken or lean meat, but I am partial to salmon. It is hard to overcook salmon filets, so a simple favorite to throw on the grill. 4–6 ounces of salmon provide approximately 24–36 grams of protein (about 6 grams per ounce). Make extra when preparing for dinner, to easily throw on top of a salad and/or leftover veggies for a satisfying lunch the next day.
