- Sockeye salmon fillet - Olive oil - Lemon juice - Salt & pepper - Lemon slice - Fresh dill

Make the seasoning


In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the olive oil, salt, and pepper until fully combined.

Brush the salmon

Dry salmon fillet using a few sheets of paper towels and brush with the olive oil mixture on both sides.


Prepare grill

Preheat the grill. Scrape the grates to remove all leftover food residue. Fill a bowl with oil, and dip a wad of paper towel inside. Grease the grates generously with oil.


Grill the salmon

Place the salmon on the grill, skin side down. Cook uncovered for 3 minutes or until it releases easily from the grates. Flip & grill until fully cooked.



Transfer the grilled wild salmon onto a plate and loosely cover it with a tent of aluminum foil for a few minutes. Garnish with fresh herbs and wedges of lemon. Serve!
