Grilled Salmon

grilled-salmon

This simple @cookbycolor salmon is flakey, fresh and flavorful! And the leftovers? Helllooooo salmon hash! I cooked this on the @traegergrills. My mom doesn’t have a grill, and wants you to know she makes it under the broiler in her apartment, and it is delicious. ⁣

While I prep the salmon, I roast fingerling potatoes in the oven. Crispy fingerling potatoes are. so. good. They are creamy inside and get crispy skins on the outside. Try them if you haven’t⁣.
