A couple tips for making this salmon
- Try not to force the salmon while flipping. If it’s sticking to the grill give it a minute or two and it will release from the grill on it’s own when it’s ready to flip.
- Leave the skin on the salmon during cooking. This helps the salmon stay together and not fall apart when flipping. Once the salmon is cooked allow to cool slightly and remove the skin.
- I grilled the salmon but this would also be wonderful in the oven or on the stove top.
