For the Chili-Lime Rub:
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Zest of 1 lime
For the Grilled Salmon:
2 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
For the Grilled Vegetables:
1 zucchini, sliced lengthwise
1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the chili-lime rub: chili powder, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper, and lime zest. Mix well.
Rub the chili-lime mixture evenly over both sides of the salmon fillets. Let them marinate for about 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, toss the sliced zucchini, red bell pepper, and yellow bell pepper with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Place the marinated salmon fillets on the grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until cooked through and slightly charred. Remove from the grill and drizzle with fresh lime juice.
At the same time, grill the vegetables for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until they are tender and nicely grilled.
Serve the grilled salmon alongside the grilled vegetables and enjoy!
