This recipe illustrates how easy it is to increase flavor in foods by increasing the surface area that is exposed to heat.
King salmon, also called Chinook salmon, is the largest of the Pacific salmon. The fish have a flesh color that ranges from reddish-orange to pinkish-red to nearly white. Unlike some fruits and vegetables, however, the color of the fish doesn’t indicate different nutrients or varying levels of nutrients. All king salmon is rich in protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids, which can help safeguard your cardiovascular health.

This recipe illustrates how easy it is to increase flavor in foods by increasing the surface area that is exposed to heat. When you grill small, lean and thin pieces of foods, they will cook quickly, which reduces the risk of burning and charring. This lowers the risk of carcinogens being produced during the grilling process.
