    Just look at that color!! Starting the New Year off right is something we all strive for and eating more wild sockeye salmon makes it easy.

    Chili Lime Grilled Sockeye Salmon Rice Bowls made with Wild Alaskan Bristol Bay Sockeye.

    Preheat grill to medium high. Rub salmon fillets with oil then season generously with Chili Lime seasoning.

    Slice tips and ends off of zucchini and squash then slice each lengthwise into 4 sections. Slice the red onion into thin strips. Drizzle with oil then season with salt and pepper.

    Place veggies on a season grill basket and grill 2- 3 minutes a side. Grill the salmon 3-4 minutes a side, starting with seasoning side down, flip once to finish skin side down. Test for doneness to your liking with a fork to see if the fish flakes easily. Can have it just past done if you like or left a teeny bit rare in the middle.

    Set the salmon and veggies aside to rest while you assemble the rest of the bowls.

    Place a half a cup or so of hot cilantro lime rice in each bowl, add in a fourth a cup of black beans and a tablespoon or so of the crumbled Cotija cheese on top of the beans. Slice the zucchini and squash and place about a half a cup of each of the veggie mix into each bowl. Place one salmon fillet into each bowl, top the salmon with a few tablespoons of fresh pico de gallo, place a few avocado slices next to the salmon. Garnish with cilantro and lime slices. Serve with hot sauce if desired.
