I cook a lot of salmon and I've done it every way I've seen. I get the highest approval using KISS, essentially grilled hot and fast. I season with Lawry's, black pepper and parsley. I usually heat the pit up around 400*-500*. Oil the grates with a paper towel and some vegetable oil. I put the salmon on and close vents or cut the gas to cut the temp down around 300* as quickly as possible. Salmon is flipped after about 3 minutes, then taken off after another 3 minutes. I want it seared and juicy on the outside and medium rare inside.
