Red Lobster Grilled Salmon with Vinaigrette & Asparagus

Main Ingredients:
4 eight- to ten-ounce pieces of fresh salmon fillets, skinless
1/2 cup canola oil
McCormick's Season All
1 lb. fresh asparagus spears, medium size
Sun-dried tomato basil vinaigrette (recipe below)
4 portions of your favorite savory rice recipe 
(Red Lobster suggests a wild/white rice blend)

Grilled Salmon:

Lightly brush both sides of fillets with oil and season with McCormick's Season All.

Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat and grill fish for 4-5 minutes until well marked.

Turn fish over and continue grilling another 5-6 minutes or until your fresh fish preference is reached.

Grilled Asparagus:

Measuring from the tip, cut stems off about 5 inches down. Discard stems.

Toss asparagus in 3 tbsp. oil; add salt and pepper to taste.

Grill asparagus for about 1 minute, then roll and grill another minute or until tender.

Serving Procedures:

Place a heaping portion of rice on the center on a large dinner plate. Place fish leaning on half of the rice. Place asparagus next to fish and rice. Pick two pieces of asparagus and criss-cross over fish. Spoon two ounces of warm vinaigrette over fish. Serve with a lemon wedge.


Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Vinaigrette: (Yield: 8 ounces)

6 ounces canola oil
2 ounces red wine vinegar
2 ounces sun-dried tomatoes in oil, finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
2 tbsp. red onion, diced
1 tsp. fresh garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl, mix canola oil, red wine vinegar, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh basil, red onions and garlic.

Using a wire whip, mix ingredients until incorporated.

Whip in salt and pepper to taste and warm slightly.

Makes 4 Servings
