The Tastiest Grilled Salmon

Salmon is one of my favorite fish to prepare, you can do almost anything with salmon. Salmon doesn’t just taste good is a great source of protein, healthy fats, and various essential vitamins and minerals.
Salmon is rich in long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure, and decrease risk factors for disease.

This recipe is my “go-to recipe” when I need to prepare dinner in 30 minutes or less.

I serve grilled salmon with whatever vegetables are in season, a salad, and a crusty loaf of bread.

1 1/4 lb of salmon

Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper

*You can add garlic powder or any seasoning you wish


Preheat coals for an outdoor charcoal grill, gas grill, or indoor grill pan to medium heat. I find that cooking the salmon over medium heat (about 350°F-400°F) gives it that delicious, charred exterior while keeping the inside moist and tender.
Rub the salmon with olive oil, then sprinkle with the seasoning. This will prevent the fish from sticking to the grill, and it helps to create a crispy exterior.
Grill the salmon for about 5 minutes per side. The fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.
