Grilled Salmon with Yogurt Lemon Caper Sauce

Salmon, packed with omega-3’s and a good source of protein, along with other meaty filets like swordfish and mahi-mahi, are fantastic when infused with the flavorful char of a grill. It’s a great option when looking for a healthy protein to toss on the grates.

Grilled Salmon with Yogurt Lemon Caper Sauce

This recipe is based on a version of poached salmon served cold alongside a yogurt-based sauce with lemon juice, capers and dill that you’ll often find at brunches, bridal showers and potlucks. But here, the salmon is grilled, giving it tons of added flavor, and it can be served chilled, like the classic, or warm from the grill.

Because this version of salmon with yogurt sauce is so versatile, it works well for any kind of entertaining, whether it’s for a large group or a small family. The sauce can be made ahead so the flavors have time to meld, and the salmon can be grilled in advance, too. Then, everything can be refrigerated and cooled for a refreshing and light summer meal or as part of a buffet.

Shredded Kale Caesar Salad with Grilled Salmon from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

With warmer weather in the air and summer on the way, all I want to do is break out of my office and run for the sunny hills. I have the itch to get outside as much as possible so I can soak up the rays I missed so desperately all winter. 

I think this warmer weather means eating outside at every opportunity is a must. But what is the best menu for alfresco dining? Outdoor dining calls for the freshest food you can find – and I’m craving seafood and salads.

Shredded Kale Caesar Salad with Grilled Salmon from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

Caesar salads, in particular, are perfect for warm-weather dining, especially when topped with fresh seafood. Try kale as a substitute for everyday lettuce, though you can use whatever leafy green you prefer. You can read more about different substitution options in our Guide to the Types of Lettuce. Then, learn more about How to Clean and Store Lettuce.

Grocery stores always have kale, but unlike the winter months, where slow cooking it with ham hocks and spices feels most comforting, I like to make salads that show off the bright green color and freshness of the healthful veggie. I like to buy my kale locally from the farmers market because it’s less expensive and a fun family outing. If you aren’t feeling ready to jump into shopping the farmers market, you should read our tips to help you navigate them like a pro.

Shredding the kale is the best way to prepare it for salads because it’s much easier than chopping it by hand and the thinner strips of kale actually make it more tender. This simple method is easy and quick to prepare using the slicing blade in the food processor.

Tangy Caesar dressing is quick and easy to make in a small personal blender. Anchovies, garlic, lemon and Dijon mustard add a subtle but substantial kick to this classic dressing. If you’ve been following our blog for a while, you’ve seen us use this same Caesar dressing on our grilled Caesar salad.

We especially like it on this version because the combination with the kale gives the whole salad a little more substance. Pat is always saying how there’s not enough “stuff” in her Caesar salad. This one feels more substantial because the kale is a little heavier and the salmon is nice and rich.

 

Speaking of the salmon, we found a gorgeous filet of Alaskan salmon, which was seasoned with salt, then brushed with a little bit of Caesar dressing before grilling. Grill the salmon on top first to get perfect grill marks, then flip it over and grill it on the skin until it’s cooked through. Add some fresh parmesan cheese and croutons, and you’ll have a perfectly filling lunch or dinner that seems made for a spring alfresco meal.

Pair your mouthwatering Caesar salad and grilled salmon with white wine, sparkling water with fresh juice or a refreshing berry cocktail. If you plan on hosting, add an appetizer and a dessert for an appetizing alfresco menu – it’ll be perfect for the spring and summer months when everyone wants to spend more time eating next to the grill on patios and porches.

Nicoise Salad with Grilled Tuna from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

Nicoise salad is a French salad with tuna, hard boiled egg, green beans, potatoes, olives and other veggies served with a vinaigrette dressing. You can use fresh or canned tuna, but we think using a nicely grilled tuna steak to top the salad makes a world of difference – not just in presentation, but in flavor, too. Since it’s still cold outside, we’re lucky we can achieve this perfectly seared rare tuna on an indoor grill in just minutes.

Nicoise Salad with Grilled Tuna from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

First, we composed the salad with a bed of lettuce, then assembled sections of the different ingredients. We made a large platter for serving a group as a lunch salad (This would also be great to serve at a brunch or bring to a potluck shower.) so we used a fair amount of each ingredient. We seared the tuna on the Searing Grill, sliced it and served it over the salad with our favorite lemon vinaigrette on the side.

It was a delicious, healthy lunch and surprisingly hearty. If you don’t usually fill up on salads, this one was made for you.

Broiled Chipotle Tilapia with Avocado Sauce from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeachBurrito bowls and one dish meals are all the rage, and everyone seems to want the recipe for easy dishes like this homemade chipotle burrito bowl – and we can’t blame them! These meals are easy to prepare, perfect to make out of leftovers and quick to clean up because fewer dishes are used. Plus, if you have any picky eaters in the family, it’s not difficult to customize the bowl.

Broiled Chipotle Tilapia with Avocado Sauce from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

Here’s a tip: to prepare lunches or quick dinners like this, prep the ingredients on Sundays before your busy week begins. In fact, we made this at my house last night. We cut the grilled corn off a cob, diced up some fresh bell peppers and chiles, rinsed and warmed black beans, and chopped tomatoes and onions. Meanwhile, a batch of rice was going in my rice cooker and the fish was broiling in the toaster oven. The entire meal was easy and healthy – perfect for a quick supper. Often, we’ll double the recipe (or swap out the fish for chicken) and take the leftovers for lunch the next day.
