Tips to Add More Delight to Emeril Salmon Recipe

  • To prevent salmon from sticking, make sure the grill is hot and grates are properly oiled when you place salmon to cook.
  • What if the salmon does not release from the grill easily? The fish releases itself easily once it is properly cooked. However, if it doesn’t, allow it to cook a bit longer.
  • I recommend using wild salmon for this recipe. As, wild salmon is much leaner than farm-raised, and this low and slow method traps the fish’s natural oils, yielding a soft, silky, buttery texture – it practically melts in your mouth.
