  • To prepare salmon: Preheat grill to medium-high (see Tip). Pat salmon dry with paper towels. Rub oil all over the salmon. Sprinkle both sides with pepper and salt. Place the salmon on the grill, skin-side up. Grill until the salmon lifts from the grates without sticking, about 6 minutes. Flip the salmon and brush with the reserved 1 Tbsp. sauce. Cook until the salmon lifts from the grates without sticking and flakes with a fork, 1 to 2 minutes more. Serve with the remaining sauce.

Tips

Tip: Clean grill grates well before grilling to prevent the fish fillets from sticking. To oil the grates, soak a paper towel with vegetable oil, hold it with tongs and rub it over the grates. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)

Equipment: Charcoal or gas grill
