July is barbecue season and there’s no better way to take the heat out of the kitchen

than getting outside to cook!

 Emile Henry Baking/Grilling Stone is perfect for no-fuss grilling of meats, poultry, veggies, and this month’s recipe: Grilled Salmon.

The stone is designed to work on the barbecue (gas, charcoal, natural wood or electric) and in the oven or under the broiler up to 750°. A Baking/Grilling Stone turns your grill into an outdoor oven!

 

Grilled Salmon

Ingredients

1 lb Salmon Filet

2tsp. each lemon zest, pepper, minced garlic, sea salt

¼ cup each  soy sauce (low sodium)  brown sugar,  water,  olive oil

 

Place salmon in a shallow pan. Mix dry ingredients together and rub on the salmon.

Mix together the soy sauce, brown sugar, and olive oil. Pour over the fish. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Place Emile Henry Baking/Grilling Stone on barbecue. Preheat grill to medium heat. Lightly brush oil on stone before placing salmon on it . Cook salmon for 6 – 8 minutes per side or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
