Instructions

Grilled Salmon

  • Prepare grill. If using a charcoal grill, place charcoals towards one side of grill and make an indirect area on opposite side.
  • Coat flesh side of salmon fillet with mayonnaise, then season with Tajin Mexican Seasoning.
  • Place salmon fillet skin side down on grill over indirect heat. Close grill cover and cook between 5-10 minutes. Salmon fillets vary in thickness and will require different cooking times. Check your salmon after a few minutes. When salmon turns just barely opaque, it is done. Remove to a serving platter and top with Mexican Corn (see below).

Mexican Corn Topping

  • Heat corn kernels over medium heat for a few minutes until just warm.
  • Combine corn with mayonnaise, cilantro, Tajin Mexican Seasoning and lime juice.
  • Place corn mixture evenly over salmon fillet and crumble Cotija cheese over the top.
