- How to grill the salmon and for how long.
There are many ways to cook salmon. You can bake, fry, broil, poach or grill it.
Heck, you can even serve it raw if you want to.
But one of the most common ways of cooking salmon is to grill it. The reason is that it’s very easy and you can grill all types of cuts, whether it’s steak, fillet or sides.
You can grill salmon on an outside grill (charcoal grill is best for outside) or indoors, on a cast iron grill pan, as I did for this recipe.
And here’s how to grill salmon on a cast iron grill pan:
Heat the grill pan very hot.
Then season the salmon with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Place it on the grill and cook for 5-6 minutes.
Then flip it and cook for an additional 3-7 minutes.
Constantly check the inside to see when it’s done. Keep in mind that this is a matter of personal preference. You can make it rare, medium or well done.
If time allows, you can remove the pin bones from the fillet before grilling it. You don’t have to but it will make it easier to eat.
Check to see when it’s done by inserting an instant-read thermometer which should read 165F / 62.8C.
Another way of checking for doneness is to flake it with a fork and if it flakes easily it means it’s done.
Bear in mind that you can apply this method of grilling not just to salmon, but to almost all kinds of fish.
Moreover, you can replace the grilled salmon in this recipe with your favorite fish, but I’ll tell you more about that at the following point.
- Adjust this easy grilled salmon recipe to your taste.
This healthy grilled salmon bowl can be made with literally any fish, not just salmon. You can make it with sea bass, halibut, cod, sole, haddock, or tilapia.
The grilling method is the same as above and the grilling time depends on how thick the cut is.
It’s worth noting that salmon is best served medium or medium-rare, while the other types of fish are best served medium to medium well.
So when you check for doneness, make sure you check the inside to see if it’s still rare.
Now let’s move on to the veggies.
I made this healthy grilled salmon bowl with vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, olives, and corn. This is a classic combo that you just can’t go wrong with.
But you can experiment with your favorite veggie mix and here are a few that go well with grilled salmon:
I didn’t use any special dressing in this healthy grilled salmon bowl, except for the classic fresh lime juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper.
And honestly, it didn’t need anything fancy as I wanted to keep it simple and besides, it was already tasty and flavorful.
But if you want something special or to impress with your cooking skills, you gotta try it with the dressing I made for this salad. It’s fresh, citrusy and goes perfectly with grilled salmon.
Aside from veggies, I also added quinoa to this easy grilled salmon recipe. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that quinoa is my favorite grain.
It’s high in protein and incredibly easy to cook. This makes it the perfect addition to any salad.
But you can replace that too because there are many types of grains that go well with grilled salmon.
Here are a few which I’ve used in the past and yielded great results:

But what if you want to serve it with something other than veggies? After all, we can’t eat grilled salmon with vegetables every single day, right?
