Chili Lime Salmon

This is a quick, easy, and healthy dinner that can easily be made on a hectic weeknight. The chili powder adds a hint of heat without being overwhelming, while the lime juice adds a nice citrusy twist. I normally douse my salmon in salsa to cover up the taste of the fish, but this time I left the salsa in the fridge and enjoyed the slight heat of the seasonings. I served the salmon with some cous cous cooked in turkey stock.

1 salmon fillet
chili powder
1 lime

Place the salmon skin-side down on a plate and pat the salmon dry.

Generously coat with pepper and chili pepper. Gently rub the seasoning into the flesh. Squeeze the juice of half a lime over the fish.

Grill skin-side down for 4 minutes, with the BBQ lid on. Flip the fish over and grill for an additional 3-4 minutes.

Squeeze the juice of the remaining lime half over the flesh side of the fish and serve immediately.
