Grilled Spring Salmon Recipe
Light up the grill for this delicious grilled spring salmon recipe
- Fresh salmon fillet
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons mustard
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed or 1 teaspoon of garlic granules
- Dill weed
- Sea salt
Set fillet out to warm up for half hour. Preheat cooking source to 325-350 degrees. I use a Komodo grill heated with lump charcoal but any heat source is fine.
Mix syrup, mustard and garlic. Spread sauce over top of fillet, the skin side should be down. Once grill is prepared (I brush my grates with an olive oil and butter mix), lay fillet on grill skin side up for 4-5 minutes, depending on thickness of meat. My fillet is usually 1 inch thick. Gently turn fillet over with skin down. Apply more sauce and sprinkle with dill weed.
Cook until meat is done, 15 minutes, again depending on thickness. Once removed, set out and sprinkle with sea salt (optional) and tent with foil for five minutes.
Serve. Extra sauce may be used at the table but I do not recommend it. I enjoy fresh spring Salmon.
Enjoy! I never have a complaint from guests dining on this fish.
