Recipe Benefits

I wanted to share a dish that tastes great and offers excellent health benefits. It includes salmon, packed with omega-3 fatty acids known to improve heart and brain health. It also has antioxidant-rich veggies like bell peppers, zucchini, and onions that help fight harmful free radicals and promote overall well-being. And the best part? It’s relatively low in calories, so that you can enjoy it guilt-free. Plus, the combo of salmon and veggies gives you essential vitamins and minerals, like vitamins C and A and potassium. Grilling everything together brings out unique flavors and gives the dish a delicious, smoky taste.


  • 1 medium zucchini, cut in half lengthwise
  • 3 bell peppers (1 red, 1 orange, 1 yellow), trimmed, halved, and seeded
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground pepper
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 1-inch wedges
  • 1 1/4 pounds of salmon fillet, cut into 4 portions
  • 1/4 cup of thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 1 lemon, cut into 4 wedges


  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  2. To prepare the zucchini, peppers, and onion, it is recommended to coat them with oil and season with 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Then, season the salmon with pepper and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
  3. Grill the vegetables and salmon with the skin side down. Flip the vegetables once or twice and cook until grill marks appear and they become tender, which should take around 4 to 6 minutes per side. To cook the salmon, wait until it flakes easily with a fork before flipping it. It should take approximately 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. After letting the vegetables cool down, chop them and mix them in a big bowl. If you want, take the skin off the salmon fillets and serve them with the vegetables. For each serving, add a tablespoon of basil and a lemon wedge as decoration.
