Healthy Grill Recipe – Grilled Salmon

grilled salmon with lemon wedges

Ingredients

  • 6-8 ounce skin-on salmon fillets about 1-inch thick, however many you want to cook
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lemon cut into wedges

Instructions

  • Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat, 450°F-550°F. Brush the cooking grates clean and close the lid to heat.
  • Generously coat the flesh side of the salmon fillets with oil and season evenly with kosher salt and black pepper. Grill the salmon skin side down over direct high heat with the lid closed, for about 6-8 minutes or until the fish lightens in color, becomes more firm to the touch and you can lift the fillets off the cooking grates without them sticking. 
  • Turn the salmon over, close the lid, and cook to 130°F or about 2-4 minutes for medium-rare or longer to desired doneness. Transfer to a platter to rest for 1-2 minutes. Slide the salmon skin from the fillets and serve with wedges of lemon and tartar or cucumber dill sauce.
