Grilling Salmon Fillets on a Gas or Charcoal BBQ Grill
To ensure salmon fillets do not stick to either a charcoal or gas BBQ grill, get the grill rack really hot. Once it is hot, brush olive oil over the gas or charcoal grill rack and over both sides of the salmon fillets. Season the salmon and grill on mediumwith the lid closed for about 15 minutes, checking about every 5 minutes for flare-ups, etc. Your salmon is done when it flakes with a fork.
You can’t beat fresh salmon grilled on cedar planks using your gas or charcoal barbecue grill. Soak the planks fully submerged in fresh, clean, warm water for at least 1 hour. Remove the plank from the water and brush with oil. Brush the salmon with oil or maple syrup, depending on the flavor you want, place the salmon on the cedar plank with the skin-side down, and add spices. Place the cedar planks directly on the grids of your pre-heated charcoal or gas barbecue grill and grill over medium heat for about 20 minutes, checking every 5 minutes. The planks add an earthy, sweet, subtle flavor to the salmon.
Enjoy grilled salmon anywhere with a portable gas barbecue grill.
