Grilled Asian Salmon

This is a fun way to give salmon an extra tang with a far eastern accent.
Serving: 1/4+ pound per person

Asian Grilled Salmon Rub:

2 tablespoons Oyster Sauce
1 teaspoons mustard
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice

Spread Asian Salmon Rub on salmon, allow to sit at room temperature for 20 minutes before grilling.


1. If salmon has skin on, place skin side down on pre-heated GrillGrates (8 to 10 minutes), Low-Low/Med heat.  For charcoal, preheat your GrillGrates after the red hot peak, gray coals only (8-10 minutes), lid closed. 
2. Grill salmon approx. 16 minutes total grilling time on Low-Low/Med Heat, lid down. Timing depends on how hot your grill is and how thick the salmon cut is.
3. Turn after 8 minutes. See note below.

NOTE: Judge the initial sear marks to get an indication of how hot you are cooking. If the sear marks are dark to black on the first flip, you are cooking too hot, turn down the burners.  Notice how the natural omega oils sizzles just under the salmon to enhance juiciness.  Your grill never sounded so good.

Tip: Salmon cooks quickly because of its naturally high oil content, don’t over cook.

Suggested pairings:
-Grilled bokchoy or grilled broccoli drizzled with 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil, sprinkled with salt and pepper
-Grilled green onions brushed with sesame oil
