  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 4 servings
  • • 1½ pounds wild salmon (split into 4 pieces)
  • • ½ teaspoon salt
  • • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • • Juice of 1 lemon

Set a grill to high heat. Pat salmon dry with a paper towel, mist with olive oil spray, sprinkle on salt and pepper, and squeeze on fresh lemon juice.

Place room-temperature salmon, skin-side down, on the pre-heated indoor or outdoor grill. Cook for 5 to 8 minutes (a good guide is 4 to 5 minutes per ½-inch thickness of salmon), or until fish is easily flaked. Use a wide spatula to carefully flip to the other side and cook another 4 to 5 minutes, or until it reaches your preferred level of doneness. Note: Salmon should release easily from the grill; if it doesn’t, wait another 1 minute or 2 before flipping. Keep in mind most salmon filets take just about 12 minutes to cook through, so pay close attention to avoid overcooking.

Serve immediately with lemon wedge on side for squeezing.
