Grilled Salmon

Grilled Salmon




  • Vegetable Oil, for grill
  • 4 (6 to 8 ounce) center cut salmon fillets, no more than 1 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Tartar Sauce


  1. Prior to starting grill; brush grill grate lightly with vegetable oil.
  2. Prepare a hot fire. (If you can hold your hand comfortably 5 inches above heat source for 2 seconds, the fire is hot.)
  3. Rinse salmon under cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
  4. Brush salmon with the oil to add moisture during cooking process.
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Place salmon, flesh side down, on grill grate. Cook 5 to 6 minutes. For easier turning; slide prongs of barbecue fork between bars of grill grate and slide under salmon. Gently lift and slide a spatula under salmon. Turn and cook 5 to 6 minutes longer or until fish is opaque and slightly firm. (Turn fish only once.)
  7. Transfer salmon to serving plates and serve immediately with tartar sauce.
