Anyone else grill salmon?

meitman meitman
So I tried grilling salmon filets for the first time recently. They turned out pretty good, actually, but I'm wondering if there's anything I can put on them to give them more flavor or make them not so dry. Anyone else cook salmon on the grill? Do you do anything special when cooking them?

Marinate it for half an hour (that's all fish needs!) in olive oil, lemon juice, and herbs. Only cook it to 145 degrees Fahrenheit, so you're not cooking it to death. Instant-read thermometers are cheap these days! Finally, steaks cook up more moist than filets.

Wrap it in foil with onion, butter and lemon slices. Delicious!!!

Make a herb butter to brush on it while you are grilling. Will help keep it moist.

As I recall, cooking salmon until the middle (thickest) portion has started to turn opaque is the correct way to do it. It will still cook for a bit after it's off the heat, so waiting until it's completely cooked through will dry it out.

We would marinate it with olive oil, lemon, and seasonings before putting it on the grill. That definitely made it carry the flavor.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, grilling salmon and smoking it with Cedar chips is a favorite! We love it. We always prepare it when have company from out of town. We also add a lemon/butter/dill sauce as a side option.

Here is a picture of the sauce made by McCormick & Co.

I agree with the marinate and wrap it in foil. Salt, pepper, butter, and lemon is all you need.

I agree with many others on this. Marinating in or brushing with olive oil or butter will help the fish stay moist while cooking. Also, lemon, black pepper, and dill go well with salmon. When we poached salmon in culinary school, we made a dill cream sauce to go with it that I ended up making at home and just drowning my salmon in it because it was so good. I salmon
