Here’s how to make the absolute best grilled salmon! It’s perfectly tender and flavored with a magic seasoning blend that takes it to new heights.
- Preheat a grill to medium-high heat (375 to 450 degrees).
- Brine the salmon: While the grill preheats, in a shallow dish mix together 4 cups room temperature water and 3 tablespoons kosher salt. Place the salmon in the water and wait for 15 minutes (this should be about the time it takes to preheat).
- Pat the salmon dry with a clean towel. Rub it generously with oil and sprinkle it with the kosher salt and seasoning blend (or simply salt and pepper).
- Grill the salmon over indirect heat skin side down for 5 minutes, until it releases from the grates. Flip and cook another 2 minutes, until the internal temperature is 125 to 130 degrees. Allow to rest for a few minutes, then serve.
*We highly recommend making this homemade seafood seasoning! To make a quick version just for the salmon, mix 2 teaspoons smoked paprika, 2 teaspoons garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon cumin.
