Salmon Recipe On Flat Top Grill

There are some dinner entrees that everyone seems to adore, and grilled salmon is one of them. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s healthy, and it doesn’t get much better than that.

This recipe is a combination of a few I’ve tried along the way, combined with a few of my favorite spices, and everyone’s plate is licked clean after serving. In my younger years, I played around with baking salmon with a little bit of lemon or wrapping it in aluminum foil, which always seemed to be “ok” but never really seemed to wow anyone sitting down to the table.

There are a few things to remember when grilling salmon: it is much, much easier to use a griddle on the grill or a grill matt; don’t try to place the salmon right on the grates; you’ll only end up with a mess and possibly a few choice words; and if you cut the salmon filet into serving sizes, it will be so much easier to flip and it has no effect on the taste at all!
