Grilling fish can be daunting, but fear not! You can claim your title as “Grill Master” in no time by following these easy steps.
by Tyler Florence & Kira Akerstorm
Preheat your grill to high.
Rinse 4 5 oz. pieces of salmon under cold running water, and pat dry with paper towels. Coat with 2 Tbsp. olive oil and season with 1 tsp. salt.
Place fillets on a clean, oiled and hot grill and cook for 5 minutes, or until the fish releases from the grates. Flip the fish with a spatula and cook for 5 more minutes or until cooked to desired doneness (we like our salmon still a little pink in the middle, the inner temperature between 108-115F).
Place salmon on a plate or platter and let rest for 2 minutes. Garnish with olive oil, lemon, chives, and parsley if desired. Serve with your favorite side and sauce!
