  • Thaw salmon if frozen. Sprinkle salmon with the 1/4 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Coat both sides of salmon fillets with cooking spray. For a charcoal or gas grill, grill salmon on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat 8 to 12 minutes or until salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning once halfway through grilling time.
