Easy Salmon BBQ

By Momma Chef

It’s the much-anticipated salmon season. And this has to be one of the easiest salmon dishes you are ever going to make. You absolutely cannot mess this up. It’s a three-ingredient recipe that uses a prepared sauce. And it only takes 25 minutes to make, from start to finish. Just don’t overcook the fish! I am all about presentation so if I’m using a large piece of salmon, I spray the pan with a good amount of a cooking spray like Pam. This prevents any skin or flesh from sticking to the pan. When the fish is done cooking, I just gently slide two spatulas under it and place it whole on the serving dish, without leaving any part of the fish behind. Your tasty barbecued salmon will be an instant hit with family and friends.
