Chef Meg's Orange-Miso Grilled SalmonBy Chef Meg Galvin, Healthy Cooking Expert at SparkPeople.com
Sweet and tangy oranges pair perfectly with rich, salty miso. A little goes a long way, and this salmon dish is decadent yet healthy! Pair it with grilled veggies and a slice of grilled whole-wheat bread rubbed with garlic.

I prefer wild salmon over farmed or Atlantic varieties. Not only does it have more Omega-3 fatty acids, but it's also more flavorful.
Keep the skin on when you grill. The skin will add moisture and serve as a safe barrier from the intense heat of the grill. It's super easy to pull off after the fish is cooked. When cooking skin-on fish, always place the flesh side down first.
