Grilled Old Bay Salmon

Spiced just right.

If you’re like us and love spicy Old Bay seasoning, this grilled Old Bay salmon recipe is sure to be a keeper. The flavors pair perfectly – the rich, meaty salmon is bold enough to compliment the strong Old Bay spice, not be overwhelmed by it as some lighter fishes can be. Try it with some grilled asparagus or a light summer salad – it’s a quick and tasty meal!
