Barbecue Grilled Salmon is an easy, flavorful way to cook fish. In this way, you can grill any kind of fish.
It’s best to cook grill fish with skin. The skin helps hold your fish together and prevent sticking on the grill.
Before you cook Barbecue Grilled Salmon, pat the salmon dry and season it with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Then place it on an oiled grill that has been preheated to medium-high.
For fillets, put the salmon down skinless side. And here’s the hardest part – don’t touch it. Let the grill do the work.
The salmon will release itself from the grill when it’s ready. Use a flat spatula to turn the salmon over. Get under it and flip to finish the cooking.
A one-inch thick piece of fish will cook in about 6 to 10 minutes: 6 minutes and it will be slightly pink in the middle; 10 minutes and it will be cooked through.
Serve fish up with some lemon.
