Perfect for Paleo: Grilled Salmon With Lemon-Thyme Vinaigrette

Once the weather turns warm, we give our oven a break and fire up the grill. We cook everything over the flames: beer-can chicken, asparagus and mushrooms, black bean burgers. But every now and again, we’ll grill fish instead of the requisite burger. Whip up a light vinaigrette for basting, and you’ve got yourself a guilt-free dinner in a char-grilled flash.

The latest fish we tried was the Grilled Salmon with Lemon-Thyme Vinaigrette (recipe below) from the eMeals Paleo plan. We paired it with a simple sauté of fresh green beans and multicolored bell peppers, all of which you can brush with more of the delicious vinaigrette.
