Grilling was initiated ages ago and can be traced back to the 17th Century. People used to catch fish or arrange other types of meat and grill it on the fire to have their meals. The amazingness that grilling adds to the food was later adopted by various regions globally during the 18th Century and is still practiced in contemporary times.
Today, I am going to do some grilling to Salmon to my love, Salmon. This recipe is great for summer and treats your appetite like nothing else. Salmon, in particular, is truly the best grill option because it is fast, easy, healthy, and delicious.
If you have a wild-caught Salmon, it is good for eaters as this higher fat fish yields a more buttery bite. Otherwise, a good quality Salmon, raised on a farm can also serve you a great mellow flavor.
So, let’s look into the recipe and its ingredients.
Bonefish Grill Salmon Recipe
- 4 Salmon Fillets.
- 2 tbsp Grape Seed Oil.
- 2 tsp Kosher Salt.
- 2 tsp Freshly Grounded Black Pepper.
- 1 tbsp Lemon Juice.
- Avoid marinating Salmon Fillets before grilling for too long as it can leave extra flavor and moisture. It is recommended to marinate it just before grilling; otherwise, if someone wants to have a bit of a shrilling taste in it, they can marinate the Salmon Fillets with Salt, Soy Sauce, and Garlic for 2-3 minutes before grilling.
- First of all, the grill has to be prepared over the high heat of 450oF –550oF for direct cooking. Next, clean the grates with a brush and close the lid.
- Now evenly coat the Oil on the flesh side of the Salmon Fillet and season with Black Pepper, Kosher Salt, and Lemon Juice.
- Then start the Salmon Fillet grilling with first skin side down, over the direct high heat for about 8-10 minutes while keeping the lid closed.
- Grill the fillet until its color lightens and it becomes firm so you can flip it easily on the grate without letting it stick to the grates.
- Next, flip the Salmon Fillet and let it cook at 130oF for 3-4 more minutes.
- Now it can be removed from the grate. Put it on the plate and garnish with Cucumber Dill Sauce or Lemon Wedges, and it’s ready to serve.
Salmon is the major source of Protein, it is rich in Omega-3, and it is full of vitamins and other nutrients. However, grilling is the healthiest way to cook Salmon because it does not contain extra fats like Oil or Butter. So, there is no other faster, healthier, and easier summer entrée than a piece of perfectly grilled Salmon Fillet.
You can refrigerate the leftover Grilled Salmon in an airtight container for up to 2 days. According to the US Food and Drug Administration, it can also be frozen for 4-6 months. Additionally, thawed Salmon can be used in salads and substitutes for canned Salmon in Sandwiches, Wraps, Casseroles, or Pasta dishes.
Tip: Try to Grill Salmon with Foil
If you want your Grill Salmon to have a unique taste with a tender and juicy look, then try it with a foil cover. Make a packet around the Salmon Fillet using a foil sheet. It traps the moisture inside, and consequently, the Salmon turns out to be perfectly flaky and tender rather than a dry fillet.
