Tips for Grilling Salmon:

  • Salmon cooks quickly so it’s important to keep an eye on it, using a digital meat thermometer is the best way to avoid overcooked fish. 
  • The USDA recommends cooking fish to 145°. If you prefer your salmon cooked to medium, grill to 130°.
  • Grill salmon skin side down. The skin will protect the flesh from sticking to the grill and from cooking too quickly.
  • Don’t flip the salmon, it will cook through without being flipped. 
  • Smoke flavor is a delicious compliment for salmon. Try pecan, hickory or oak for amazing flavor.

How to Store and Reheat:

  • Store leftover salmon in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 4 days.
  • Reheat salmon in a covered skillet over medium heat for 5- 8 minutes until heated through.
