Grilled Salmon
  • 1 lb Salmon filet (or similar, "steak-like" fish)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Seasonings to taste (dried dill, sea salt, pepper, lemon juice)
  1. Preheat a gas grill to medium heat.
  2. Rinse salmon filet under cool running water and place on board or platter.
  3. Lightly brush skin and flesh sides of salmon with olive oil.
  4. Season salmon as desired with dried dill, sea salt, pepper, and/or lemon juice.
  5. Place the salmon directly on the grill with the flesh side facing the grill, and cook for 2 minutes.
  6. Flip salmon filet over so skin side rests on grill and continue cooking until salmon is opaque and flakes easily, about 4-8 minutes.
