Make sure to repin this recipe

When I was younger I lived in this house with this amazing desk and my dad and I would grill almost everyday during the summer. Well it is 10 years later and I am doing the same thing ( sometimes my dad helps too 🙂 ).

When I BBQ I always try and use charcoal since to me it tastes so much better – I am getting hungry just thinking about it. There is just something almost magical about a hamburger cooked over Kingsford Charcoal ( this is the only type I use).

I thought it would be fun to so y’all a grilling recipe using something different than beef. I went to my local grocery store and picked up salmon – my tomato plate is producing tons of tomatoes right now so I thought they would be perfect for the recipe. Acid ( from the tomatoes and the salmon) work well together – pairing that is basil is a match-made in heaven.

I love simple recipes all I used was a little grape oil to grease the grill and a little on the fish. I used a skillet made for the grill so the fish will not stick to the grill plus I was able to cook up the tomatoes and basil with the fish.

I cover the grill with the grill top and cook till the fish is flaky. This is a super simple recipe with simple flavors that are fantastic.
