Salmon on the Grill Recipe
  • Brush the gas or charcoal grill grates with oil to prevent salmon from sticking.
  • Place rack approximately 4" from heat source and preheat the grill (the fire should be very hot).
  • Rub a thin coat of oil on the salmon to prevent sticking.
  • Grill salmon, flesh side down, for 5 minutes. At this point you can choose to turn the salmon over or cover with foil. Grill for 2 to 3 additional minutes.
  • To check for doneness, cut into the center with a sharp knife. If salmon appears flakey, it is done. Serve immediately.
