Basic Salmon Preparation
Another tasty dish from chef/co-owner David MacDonald
Pre-heat oven on Broil for 10 minutes.
Lightly rub salmon with olive oil. Place top side down on broiler pan, 2nd rack from the top. Cook 5 minutes, flip, add salt, pepper or other seasonings to taste. Broil another 5 minutes. Adjust 1-2 minutes more or less per side cooking time for thin or thick cuts. A simple, healthful, flavorful addition is to just squeeze some fresh lemon on individual pieces as they are served.
For BBQ grill:
Pre-heat grill on high heat for 10-15 minutes with lid closed. Prep salmon and add seasonings as above. Place top of salmon down on grill. Close lid and turn heat to medium. Cook 5 minutes, flip, cook other side for 5 minutes with lid closed. Increase by 1-2 minutes cooking time per side for thicker cuts. Ready to go!
*Chef’s tip: set timer for cooking times for best results
