How to Grill Salmon

Have you ever wondered about which other way you can cook salmon other than steaming? An interesting and delicious way to prepare salmon is by grilling it. Nothing tastes as good as salmon coming straight off the grill. Here are a few tips that should help you on how to grill salmon:

Choose the right salmon

Before doing anything else, you must choose the size of the salmon to be grilled, whether a large or small one/piece. Some salmon will cook easier than others, this is due to the fact that the thicker the size of the salmon, the more time it will take to finish grill.

Pre heat grill

Light the grill and turn it up to the highest heating point. If it is a gas grill, preheat to 350 degrees or if it is a charcoal grill, let the charcoals burn until there is white covering of ashes on all of them.

Make marinade sauce

Depending on what flavor marinade sauce you want the salmon to have, you should combine the desired ingredients that gives the desired flavor in a bowl. This marinade sauce will be used throughout the grilling process.

Prepare salmon for grilling

If the salmon needs to be cleaned, please do so before applying any seasoning to it. In order to have great tasting grilled salmon, it is best to add powdered seasoning both inside and out before putting it on the grill. You can also dip the salmon in the marinade sauce before or after applying the powdered seasoning. Depending on the size of salmon like the meatier ones will be required to be marinated at least 20 minutes before grilling.

Grill Fish

Before putting the salmon on the grill, lightly put some oil on the grill to prevent the meat from sticking to it. Place the seasoned salmon on the preheated grill to cook for about five to seven minutes. Be sure to watch it constantly as meats, such as salmon cooks very quickly and easily. The salmon should only be flipped once.

Remove grilled fish

One way to know if the salmon is properly grilled is if it appears opaque throughout or if the color seems darker. Once it seems cooked, remove salmon from the grill and let it cool for a while before serving. Grilled salmon can be served with vegetables, any side dish or just eaten alone.

Here are a few tips and warnings that you should consider when planning to grill fish.

Tips and Warnings

  • Ensure that you have all the utensils needed close by the grill. This will help to avoid mishaps and the fish getting burnt.
  • It good to have a bottle of water close by in the event that leakages from the fish cause a flare up on the grill. The water can be used to stop any flare up.
  • After trying grilled salmon, salmon for you will never be the same. This is a meal that your family will love.
