How to Make Grilled Salmon

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 1 filet Wild salmon
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Grass-fed butter
  • 2 tbsp seasoning of your choice (I typically use either a combo of herbs and salt, or a blackened seasoning)


  1. First, fire up the grill! Turn it up to 450 degrees and let it get hot.

  2. While waiting, prep the salmon. Get out your grill pan and cover it with aluminum foil for easy clean up and no sticking. Then place your salmon on it.

  3. Pour the olive oil on the salmon. Then layer on your choice of seasonings and spices. Then, add the butter just plopped on top of the salmon. This helps add depth of flavor and tenderness. We don't want any dry fish around here!

  4. Now that the grill is ready, take the salmon out and place the pan on the grill. Close it up, and let it cook for 10-15 minutes. Everyone's grill is different, so just start checking it around 10 minutes to see how much longer it might need.
