This has been one of my family’s favorite recipes for years. We usually have halibut with cheese sauce on a bed of wilted spinach, but since we had some arugula in the fridge that was nearing its expiration date I used arugula in place of the spinach. For this recipe, I prefer spinach, which has a mellower taste than arugula.
Jaime and I have been trying to avoid using the oven this summer as it further heats up the house, which is already toasty enough due to the South Carolina summer heat. As a result we have been trying to use the grill as much as possible. Cedar plank grilled salmon has become one of our go-to recipes for a quick meal. It requires a bit of advanced planning as the plank requires soaking, but on nights that we don’t have time to soak the plank, we just skip the plank and put the salmon on a grill pan. Add grilled corn, grilled naan, and a salad and this is an easy weeknight meal that doesn’t require turning on the oven.
