How to cook grilled salmon fillet


Charcoal will give the dish an entrancing shish kebab aroma, but the same effect can be achieved on an electric grill using alder wood chips.

Grilled salmon with a minimum number of spices is an opportunity to reveal the excellent taste of delicate red fish, to preserve its juiciness, special aroma and to please friends and relatives with a hearty and tasty dish.

How to cook grilled salmon

You can cook salmon in various ways:

  • in kind
  • with preliminary pickling,
  • with special sauce.

For cooking on charcoal or electric grill, both freshly caught or chilled, and frozen fish are suitable.

Freshly caught or chilled fish can be cooked without prior pickling, as it has a fairly rich taste and juiciness in kind. A thawed carcass can lose its juiciness, so it is better to stand it in a marinade.

The carcass must be carefully gutted and washed in running water, then cut steaks 1.5-2 cm thick. Slices on both sides should be sprinkled with vegetable oil (preferably olive oil) so that a crispy crust forms on the outside when frying, and the inside remains as juicy as possible.

Abundantly sprinkle steaks with Provencal herbs mixed with salt and allspice, fry them on both sides on a wire rack. As soon as a light golden crust forms, the fish can be served to the table as a separate dish, as well as with vegetable or cereal side dishes. Serve the prepared sauce with the fish.

The product of deep freezing after thawing should be kept in the marinade before putting it on the grill for 15-60 minutes, depending on the size of the pieces or carcass.

Useful Tips

Here are some tips to help you improve your taste:

  • for grilling, it’s better to choose a whole carcass rather than a ready-made steak,
  • thaw frozen carcass in a natural way,
  • chop the greens, garlic and pitted olives very finely,
  • for baking in foil with steak sauce, it is better to remove the bones.

To cook red fish, you don’t have to have special culinary skills, especially if you use a charcoal or electric grill. Grilled salmon will require much more attention, because unlike a coal or electric grill, this device does not allow you to adjust the distance from the grill to the coals, control the temperature and air flow (draft). For these reasons, steaks fried on the grill can lose their juiciness, burn and lose their taste.
