    c.walsh's Note:

    From America's Test Kitchen, a fool-proof way to grill moist salmon without it sticking to the grill. This is more a method than a recipe, so season to your own taste! McCormick's makes great dry seasonings to sprinkle on, and Montreal Steak seasoning goes great with salmon. I also like their mesquite flavor on this dish.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 salmon fillets, skin-on, 1/2 lb. each
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    • salt and pepper, to taste

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare grill: Place sheet of aluminum foil on grill grates, tucking in ends to secure. Pre-heat on high for 15 minutes with lid closed. This gets the grill grates super hot!
    2. 2
      Remove foil and wipe down grates with oil until black and glossy, about 10 times, not just 2 or 3! This is super important for keeping fish from sticking.
    3. 3
      Rub fish with a little oil and season to taste on both sides.
    4. 4
      Place skin side down and grill 3-5 minutes depending on thickness and degree of doneness you prefer. I like med. rare so I do 3 minutes for about 1 1/2 inch fillets.
    5. 5
      Flip when fish releases from grate on it's own. If it sticks, it is not ready to flip (or you didn't grease the grill enough).
    6. 6
      Cook another 3-5 minutes on other side or until fish reads 125 degrees, depending on your preference.
