Mrs G and I have decided to try and eat a few more healthy meals a week and to kick it off we tried the recipe for Grilled Salmon with Smoky Tomato Salsa from Cooking Light. This recipe was clipped way back in Sept 2009 and has been sitting in my to-do binder. Bout time I got to it, huh?

Started out by grilling the vegetables at 400F direct

When those were done, the salmon went on for 4 minutes per side

I let the salmon rest and chopped up the veggies for the salsa.

For a recipe that only had 336g cal, 18.6g fat and 34.7g protein, this one packed in a ton of flavor. The sweetness of the grilled red onion, the acidity from the lime and the heat from the jalapenos as well as the apple wood paired really well with the salmon, complimenting it,but not over powering it. Regardless of whether you are looking for lighter meals, this is one recipe I would recommend.

Very nicely done Griffin. That meal really gives you a lot for a little.

Hey a newbie Egg users question if I may: That looks like the s/s grill grate that comes with the Egg. Do you have the cast iron grill grate? If so why didm't you use it?

Actuallys, I believe that my grate is the old one that the SS steel one replaced in a newer version. Porcelan coated maybe? I'm not sure. Anyway, I don't have a cast iron grate.....yet. I'd like to get one someday, but there are so many toys I want before that. Although it would give me better grill marks.

Yes it is porcelain coated, the BGE Cookbook keeps referring to the "porcelain coated grid". For some reason I thought I remembered seeing c/i grates on your rig in past pix.

For me the c/i grill grate was on my short list of must have Eggcessories. I had to have a Nest, a Platesetter was essential for much of what I planned to do, and I love the heavy porcelain coated c/i grates on my gasser so c/i grate a must have for Egg. It does give grate grill marks. Yesterday I was looking at the c/i half grate and half griddle grates. They will be added to my arsenal soon.
