Salmon Recipe: Super Moist BBQ Salmon

salmon recipe with tomatoes

This really is a super moist bbq salmon recipe.

There are of course many ways to cook salmon, but this one really keeps the fish moist.

Most salmon steak recipes are interchangeable with salmon fillets. Use the cut you prefer.

This barbecue salmon is a perfect summer treat and great for entertaining and get-togethers, or for an every day dinner.

If you are serving a crowd, a fish recipe like this is a nice change from heavier meats.

You might even want to think about serving two protein foods – a meat, like barbecue ribs, steak or chicken, and this salmon recipe. It gives people the option of a non-meat or lighter meal if they want.

Salmon of course is extremely healthy for us.

You can also cook a whole salmon this way. Spread part of the mayonnaise mixture in the cavity of the fish and leave a little to spread over the top.
