Tips and Hints:
• Make sure the grill is very hit before placing salmon on. You should
only be able to hold a hand 5” above for 2-4 seconds.
• To ensure salmon is cooked, test the salmon with a fork after the
correct amount of time. The grilled salmon is cooked when it
flakes easily with a fork. It will also look opaque and feel slightly
