Two Teens And Their Mama: Hubby's Grilled Salmon

Hubby's Grilled Salmon


Every July, my hubby travels to Sitka, Alaska to fish, and he brings home lots of fresh salmon and halibut.  He's also a much better cook than I am, so he's in charge of grilling up his catch. The biggest challenge when preparing fish is to resist the temptation to cook it too long.  For this recipe, follow the time exactly and you will have perfectly cooked, moist salmon!



Hubby's Grilled Salmon

Prep your salmon fillet by deboning it with needle nose pliers or tweezers
(if you've never done this before, follow these easy steps).

In a bowl, mix together 1/2 C melted butter, 2 crushed garlic gloves, 1 tsp. dill, kosher salt and pepper, to taste.
Brush generously over the flesh side of the salmon.
Let sit for 20 minutes at room temperature.

Heat grill to high temperature, and place salmon flesh side down, directly on grill surface.

After two minutes, remove salmon from grill to a large piece of foil, skin side down.  Wrap foil around the fish and return to the grill for 15 more minutes.

Remove from grill, open foil and brush a small amount of barbeque sauce over the top.

As you serve the salmon, the skin will adhere to the foil - leaving good meat on everyone's plate!



Have a wonderful weekend!  It's supposed to be very hot here in Seattle - and we don't have air conditioning - so hopefully no one will melt.
Ahh...if I only had this in my backyard!

  1. My husband cooks fish better than I do as well. This recipe looks great - we haven't tried the foil trick! Is there a trip planned to Sitka this year? Have a wonderful weekend - hope you can do something to escape the heat!

    1. Sadly, hubby isn't going to Sitka this year. Couldn't make the times work with his usual group of friends. Gasp - he'll have to buy salmon at the store :)!

  2. Looks amazing! After he retired, my dad used to take Americans up to fish in the Queen Charlottes--have to say I love Pacific salmon, but the kind we get most here in central Canada is Atlantic. It just doesn't seem as...robust.

  5. Perfect timing. We have guests---from Canada. The thought is to serve grilled salmon for tomorrow's (actually, later today's) dinner. I'll pass this along to the chef----I don't even know how to turn on the outdoor grill.

  11. We eat salmon at least once a week and will definitely try your recipe. My husband is a great believer in foil, not only for keeping the fish from overcooking but also for easy clean up. Hope you are surviving the heat ok.
