Instructions

  1. Pour a glass of your favorite wine. Take a sip and set it aside.
  2. Preheat grill to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Place Salmon filled on cutting board (skin side down) and cut into four pieces of approximately the same size.
  4. Turn salmon over aid lightly season with sea salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Other seasonings can be added but sometimes less is more. In this case I’m keeping it sweet and simple.
  5. Prepare an Olive oil/lemon juice mixture for the salmon. I use about one part Lemon to Two parts Olive Oil.
  6. When grill has been heated, spray it with a non-stick grilling spray.
  7. Place salmon on grill, skin side up and close barbecue lid.
  8. Take a sip of wine.
  9. Grill for about Seven minutes. Grilling time will vary depending on thickness of fillet.
  10. With a metal barbecue spatula carefully flip the salmon over.
  11. Apply olive oil/lemon juice mixture to salmon with a barbecue basting bush.
  12. Close lid and grill for about seven more minutes.
  13. Apply olive oil/lemon juice mixture to salmon with a barbecue basting bush once again before taking the fish off the grill.
  14. When removing the salmon from the grill, carefully slide the spatula between the skin and the meat. The skin will remain on the grill and the salmon will be place on a platter.
  15. Enjoy!

      Jamie, win makes everything taste better. ;) Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I hope you get a chance to try the recipe.

      Sandy is pretty much done here. We got the after effects of her bad mood. Some wind and rain but all is well. Thanks for asking.

      I never really liked salmon before. I always thought it was too fishy for my tastes. But my dad caugth some fresh stuff and my brother in law came over to prepare it his way. I tried a small piece and I have been hooked ever since. But I couldn't figure out a good way to make it. I am definitely going to have to try this way. And I love how you incorporated the wine. Every good cook should add wine to their ingredient list. ;)

      This is one of my favorite foods but I have never mastered cooking it. I came close making it edible in a Foreman grill on the rotisserie rack. I will give this a try. It is wonderful when it is prepared right. :)

      Simple is usually best when it comes to delicious fish like salmon. I wish we could get it in Peru. When we visit Southern Chile, salmon is our protein of choice! Thanks for this delicious recipe.

      Voted up! Wow!! Yumyumyum! At home, I pan-grill my salmon. Then drip some lemon, teriyaki sauce and basil on it. Tastes fine, as well.
