TD's Summer Grilling Specials

Everyone loves to fire up that grill and toss on a special something for dinner.  And with the July 4th weekend less than 2 weeks away, here are 2 of my favorite healthier grilling options:

Blackened Salmon Sandwich

Ingredients:
1 pound fresh salmon; this will make 4 servings
2 teaspoons blackened or Cajun seasoning
1 small pitted avocado
1 tablespoon low-fat mayonnaise
4 whole-wheat buns, toast them, it makes a difference!
1 cup arugula
2 tomatoes, slice thin
½ cup thinly sliced red onion

Directions:
Oil grill rack, preheat grill to high.
Rub salmon on both side with seasoning, grill until cooked through, generally 3-4 minutes a side.
Mash avocado and mayonnaise in small bowl.
Spread some of the avocado mayonnaise mixture on each roll and top with salmon, arugula, tomato, and onion.
ENJOY!

Lime and Pepper Flank Steak Strips

Ingredients:
1 pound flank steak
1 large lime
Ground pepper or peppercorn

Directions:
Slice flank steak into thin, beef jerky type strips.  I generally go against the grain and slice shorter strips versus going with the grain and cutting larger strips.
Place strips in a bowl and squeeze the lime juice on top of the strips.  Followed by then adding the pepper or peppercorn.
Let sit for 45 minutes.
Oil grill rack, preheat grill to high.
Grill to liking, I generally cook only 3 minutes a side.  This may change depending on how well done you like your meat.
ENJOY!
