Grilled Summer Salmon with Chimichurri.

This summer salmon recipe is my favorite! Grilled blackened salmon served with herby chimichurri and a tomato corn salad. It’s delicious and satisfying!

Summer dinner has never been so delicious!

Throw this salmon on the grill and you.are.done.

Make some chimichurri, toss together a quick summer garden salad and everything is right in the world.

Right and delicious.

It’s no secret how much we love salmon over here, and I’ve done plenty of summer versions of it before. This one, however, is loaded with ALL of my favorite things.

So much so that I don’t blame you if you pick just the summer salad or just the chimichurri. Both are so seasonally exceptional and taste like a big bite of sunshine.

However, it’s all so good together too. So if I can convince you to make the entire thing… then yes. Make it.

Here’s what we have going on:

The salmon is covered in one of my favorite at-home spice blends. Since I’m throwing it on the grill, I like to use a piece of salmon that has skin on it. I grill with the lid closed and boom, it’s done. If it’s skinless, I place it on a grill pan and do the same. Works perfectly.

The chimichurri is my favorite that I first made on the blog a decade or so ago. It’s so herby and flavorful. I can’t even explain how often I make this chimichurri. Probably three or four times a month. Eddie ADORES it. We have it on chicken, fish, steak, veggies – seriously everything. It lasts nicely in the fridge for a few days too. 

Then the classic summer salad. Think the best crisp corn sliced right off the cob. Juicy cherry tomatoes. Buttery avocado chunks. All tossed with fresh cilantro, lime, lots of salt and pepper. I could eat this straight with a spoon every single day.

I love to serve this family-style, all together on one large plate. They you can just grab and go!

If you want some summer side dish ideas for the salmon, of course it goes great with some simple white rice – the chimichurri is so good on the rice too. But here are a few other suggestions as well… my parmesan orzo, which is fantastic. These crispy smashed potatoes. Or a big thing of garlic bread done on the grill, like this cheesy stuffed garlic bread. You can use some of the chimichurri instead of pesto. 

This is definitely weeknight-staple worthy. (more…)
