How do you grill salmon with skin on it?
By Lewis from Port Orchard, WA
You can try this: Line some aluminum foil on a hot grill.
Coat the foil by spraying on some vegetable spray such as Pam to keep the fish from sticking to the foil. Lay the salmon on the foil and cook until done. The fish will flake easily when it's fully cooked. The skin can be removed once the salmon is cooked.
My husband and I love salmon!
We grill salmon all the time. We just flip it, skin down, on a hot grill, for about 5 minutes. We don't turn it over, but we do leave the cover down on the grill for part of the time. It's delicious.
We marinate out salmon in zesty french dressing for about one hour in a zip lock bag, then my husband grills them over direct heat, about 375 to 400 degrees F. He first sprays the grill with a non stick oil. Put meaty side down first for two minutes, flip the fish over and cook on skin side for five minutes.
When you do this, you can easily slide your spatula between the meat and the skin making it easier to get your salmon off the grill without the skin or breaking your fish up and the skins cleans right off the grill.
