Cedar wrapped Salmon with a quick homemade Clementine-Ginger glaze is the perfect weeknight meal that is both simple and healthy. Grilled to a smokey perfection, this meal will be ready in about 15 minutes. Ready, Set, Go!

Listen, I am a special education teacher. My energy level by the end of the day is just about empty. Therefore, making elaborate meals after work is not always on my To Do list. Tonight I came home and whipped up this meal super fast. Want to know the best part? It tasted like I slaved in the kitchen for hours, maybe even days. Let them think what they want.

I bought these cedar wraps (click to buy) from Walmart, right next to the charcoal grills. We were also buying a charcoal grill because our gas grill was crushed to smithereens by icicles. Check out my recipe for Spicy Shrimp and Quinoa Salad because there is a picture of the grill’s remains. God forbid you also like the recipe on that post.

2 salmon fillets

1 bunch of asparagus

1 clementine, sliced in circles

salt and pepper

2 cedar wraps with twine (included)

Glaze

1 cup water

1/2 cup sugar

2 clementines, juiced and save the remains

1 inch chunk of ginger, minced

Serves: 2

Instructions

For the Glaze:

  • Add all ingredients to a sauce pan (including the remains of juiced clementines)

Time to get your grill on. Like literally, turn your grill on. Grill the Salmon bundles and extra Asparagus that didn’t make it into the wrap for about 7-8 minutes.

My name is Maria! I'm a vibrant Italian American with a zest for life. I am also a major glutton. Join me on my journey to diverse restaurants and in my kitchen, as I eat and cook my way through flavory fare. I am no expert, which is why I am merely a Common Connoisseur.

One thought

  1. Oh, I am so so sorry for the confusion! I cook, create and photograph meals I make for my family, sharing recipes with my readers. This salmon recipe is something I made for dinner one night. I also like to review restaurants and food delivery companies (like Blue Apron) so that my
    readers can have an idea of what it would be like before purchasing their meals. Does that make sense? So this particular post is a recipe in which you can make at home, other posts are labeled “review” based on my experiences with those companies! Thank you so much for reading and if you make this recipe at home, let me know how it comes out! I bought the cedar planks at Walmart.
