Preparing this healthy grilled salmon will of course require a grill, with charcoal or firewood. If you do not have an outdoor grill do not worry, if you can use the racks of your oven, it will look great too.

  • Light the charcoal or wood to the fire so that the flame heats well and cooks our food evenly.
  • Season each of the vegetables to taste: tomato, pepper, potato and one of the onions. How do we do it? Take a fine knife and make small holes in each so that the heat penetrates well when cooking. Work each vegetable individually, bathe each vegetable with two tablespoons of olive oil, add the seasonings to taste (except salt) and roll each one in its own aluminum foil wrapper so that they cook independently.
  • Optional: We take the second onion and make cross sections so that it cooks very well, without separating it completely. In this case we do the same as with the rest of the vegetables, but we will season it with a sweet touch using brown sugar instead of herbs and condiments. Adding a sweet item to your dish will look great. In addition, with this technique the onion will caramelize slightly and soften its texture.
  • Vegetables will take longer to cook, so we will place them on the hot grill 30-40 minutes before salmon.
  • While the vegetables begin to cook, we will season our fillet, marinating it in the BBQ room, adding olive oil, and other herbs to taste (except salt), and we will cover it completely.

If you wish, you can wrap the salmon piece in the same aluminum foil or leave it on the grill rack.

  • We will handle everything carefully with a grill clamp. Now that we have the salmon cooking we will add a little salt to taste.
  • The salmon will be ready very quickly, from 5 to 10 minutes depending on the flame of your breaststroke. Ideally, you will wait until the grilled vegetables are cooked to add the salmon to the breasts.
  • When the vegetables are tender and cooked, take them to a chopping board into julienne strips and add a pinch of salt to taste. Chop the sweet onion separately to incorporate it at the end of everything.
  • Make a heat-resistant tray with the chopped vegetables into strips. Discover the cooked salmon and put them together. Place the tray on the rack so that all the items finish cooking together. At this point of the preparation you can incorporate more herbs and seasonings to taste.
  • Prepare the dish in which you will serve the salmon. Use the grill tongs to put the salmon on the plate and add the vegetables around and on top.
  • Finally, we open the package of the sweet onion, chop it into thin strips, and put it on top of the salmon and vegetables. Add lemon to taste and finely chopped leek.

Your dish will be ready to eat! The aluminum will help the ingredients to cook in their own vapors and will look great, but already at this moment take advantage of the table over the fire so that they all finish seasoning together. This can even be a piece of firewood to add flavor. And then, the sweet touch (which is optional) will make the flavor of the salmon and the rest of the vegetables shine.

The main benefit of cooking on the grill is that you reduce your fat intake. You will see how during the cooking process of the food, the natural oils and fats it contains fall and drain, reducing the amount of fat.

Cooking on the grill is very easy to do because it involves turning the food on the racks, or, as we have indicated, leaving them cooking wrapped in aluminum foil. Why? The most recommendable thing is not to touch or crush food to conserve its natural juices and its flavor, letting excess concentrated fats drain naturally.
