Simply Grilled Wild Salmon Recipe

Fresh wild salmon is best when you do not do too much to it.  This method of grilling a salmon filet lets the natural flavor remain the star of the dish.

  1. Brush grill rack with oil.
  2. Drizzle olive oil onto skin-side and top of salmon;
  3. Sprinkle generously with salt and fresh cracked pepper.
  4. Place salmon on preheated grill, skin-side down.
  5. Grill salmon uncovered 5 minutes.
  6. Using 1 or 2 large spatulas, carefully turn fish over.
  7. Grill until fish just begins to flake in center, 4 to 5 minutes longer.
  8. Transfer salmon to platter and serve immediately.

If you are using a wood-burning or charcoal grill, leave uncovered.  Only cover if using gas grill.
