Grilled Salmon Paprika

This recipe for quick and easy grilled salmon is based on Kalyn’s Grilled Salmon with Maple Syrup Glaze from Kalyn’s Kitchen.  I find that her site is a fantastic source overall, and particularly for protein filled entrees.  I had the pleasure of being on a panel at Blogher last year with Kalyn, and am looking forward to seeing her again this year.  The Blogher Food Conference is less than 2 months away.

Both of my boys liked this gluten free high protein entree.  In fact my older son said to me, “Mom, this chicken is really good!”  Um, I guess I’ll take that as a compliment even though this is a salmon dish.  The fact that they ate it says a lot to me.

I’ve been grilling up a storm over here.  Last night we had a delicious dinner of Mustard Lime Chicken and a big salad with Asian Salad Dressing.  I also made a roasted potato dish for the boys, with leeks from our garden.  I don’t eat potatoes because I am following an eating plan that is very close to Paleo.

So, my question is this… Do any of you have yummy paleo-esque recipes for leeks?  I have a gluten free, grain free recipe in my book, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, for Smoked Salmon Leek Tart.  I could make that 6 times and still have leeks left over.  Any ideas?

  1. Big leek fans here! My fam loves chopped leek simply sautéed with olive oil, a touch of water (to soften the leeks as they cook, some salt, black pepper and tons and tons of sautéed minced garlic. Perfect compliment to any fish dish, served as a topper or side.

  2. This sounds great! I am not a fan of salmon but would like to try it with another fish. Any recommendations of another fish to try for this dish? Thank you!!

  3. We love this recipe-thank you for sharing it! My son says it’s magic, because it takes a food he hates(salmon), and makes it into one he loves!
