Pan-Grilled Salmon Fillets – Easy Gluten-Free

Want a healthy meal?  Salmon, with its  high protein plus high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, is hard to beat.  For those who have to avoid wheat or gluten, pan-grilled salmon’s further benefit is being easy to cook well without cross-contamination from other foods.

Gluten-Free Pan-Grilled Salmon Fillets


Most restaurant chefs will readily prepare something for a diner in a clean skillet, if asked.  Asking them to clean a large grill or to set aside a large work area to be gluten-free in the midst of their other work might not be possible for them. The same principle makes it easier to cook a gluten-free meal at home, too.

Whether you or someone else is doing the cooking, here is a great way to enjoy a healthy meal.  Many varieties of fish can be cooked in this same manner, such as haddock, tilapia, cod, ocean perch or turbot, to name a few.
