Salmon Prep

  1. Remove salmon and pat dry with a paper towel. Only pat it dry, do not remove the other ingredients from the salmon.
  2. Season with salt.
  3. Grill on medium-high heat for about 4 minutes per side (or BBQ if you prefer) or until cooked to your liking.
  4. Sprinkle with pepper as per your preference.

As per my husband, the best ever salmon dish we have ever made and believe me we enjoy salmon and prepare it at least once a week, when available.

As per Wally

Made this with a couple of impromptu changes.

  1. No cilantro so substituted with fresh parsley and put under the grill for 8 minutes skin side down.
  2. Spooned the drippings over the fish before seasoning and serving.
  3. Absolutely palatable and will do it again with the cilantro for a fair comparison
