Favorite Grilled Salmon

This is my favorite salmon recipe.
 Don't let these few simple ingredients fool you.
 They perfectly enhance the salmon without masking it's  flavor.
Put the salmon on a platter and drizzle with olive oil, and soy sauce, coating well. Sprinkle generously with lemon pepper and garlic salt; (do this on both sides if the salmon is skinless), turn the filet flesh side down to marinate a few hours. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before grilling.
 Sear fish flesh side down on a very hot grill for about 5 minutes. You will now be able to easily peel off the skin on the top side. Turn and baste with any marinade left on the platter. Grill another five minutes. It's very important not to overcook the salmon. It should be slightly underdone when you remove it from the grill. The salmon will continue cooking after it's been removed to the platter. You want it moist and tender, not dry. 
 Arrange in serving  size portions on the platter and drizzle with lemon-butter sauce.
Surround with oven roasted potatoes and grilled asparagus.

I've also used chopped cilantro in place of parsley.

  1. I've never been one to eat salmon mainly because I usually stay with local seafood and I did have some bad salmon served to me as an appetizer at a dinner party once, yuck. Haven't been able to try it since but this sounds delish. DH and I have been wanting to try some grilled salmon and I think we will give this a whirl. Thanks for sharing this Rita.
