Quick and Simple Grilled Salmon with Rub
A simple, fast, and nutritious entree the entire family will love. Grilling the salmon really takes it to a whole new level.
- 1 Filet Salmon The fresher the better!
- 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
- 1/8 tsp black pepper (or to taste)
- 1/2 tsp white sugar
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
- 1 tsp parsley
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- 1 tsp basil
Mix up the rub first by combining black pepper, sugar, salt, crushed red pepper, parsley, lemon zest, and basil.
Cut salmon filet into 4 equal portions.
Pour equal portions of the oil over each cut salmon piece. Using clean hands; rub oil into each piece of salmon. (Do not skip this step; otherwise your salmon will stick to the griddle)
Sprinkle equal portions of the rub over each salmon piece; rub into salmon with clean hands or the back of a spoon.
Place griddle on top of grill. Heat grill (gas or electric) or charcoal to medium heat.
Place salmon on griddle. Keep the lid closed.
Grill about 5 min. per side; perhaps longer if your filet is thicker. Salmon is cooked when it easily flakes. To be sure; use a meat thermometer; cooking to 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
Transfer to serving platter and enjoy! Pairs well with grilled asparagus and rice or veggie skewers!
