Salmon fillets are lightly seasoned with salt, black pepper, and garlic powder, brushed with a sweet and spicy BBQ sauce, and grilled. 

I love salmon because it is so healthy for you and so delicious. However, it is not always Points+ friendly. It is a very fatty fish (although it is the healthy omega-3 fatty acids!) so a small portion can be high in Points+. Whenever I have salmon, I try to pair it with a vegetable or a salad, or in this case delicious corn on the cob. 

My boyfriend and I discovered that our moms (both named Brenda) cook their corn on the cob in almost the exact same way. It is super easy but makes the corn taste sweet and refreshing every time. I will post that recipe next week.

Anyway, we loved this dish. The salmon came out juicy and very flavorful and it was on the table in about 15 minutes--perfect weeknight meal!


  • 24 oz (1.5 pounds) Salmon Fillets
  • 3 tbsp BBQ Sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's Original)
  • 2 tsp Hot Sauce
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Black Pepper

Slice the Salmon into four 6 oz pieces. Season both sides with Salt, Black Pepper, and Garlic Powder. In a small bowl, mix together BBQ Sauce and Hot Sauce. Using a pastry brush, brush both sides with the sauce, leaving some to use while grilling. 

Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray to prevent the salmon from sticking and falling apart on the grill. 

Grill salmon for about 5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness. Brush the sauce over the fish while cooking.

Remove salmon from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. Serve with a green salad and corn on the cob, we did!

Love, Monica

  1. That's some good lookin' salmon! Yum!

  2. One of the most delicious that I have ever tried to cook on my barbeque grill was Salmon. My brothers were really surprised how the great taste of the fish was squeezed out by grilling.

  3. Thanks for this post. Me and my friends just bought a barbecue grill and wanted to try it this coming weekend.

  4. Searched the Web for a salmon seasoning recipe for the grill and came upon this post. Tried it for dinner (bonus we had all of the fixings in house). Enjoyed with a ceasar salad. This is a keeper!
