Traditionally fish would be cooked skin side down and sometimes it doesn't ever get flipped. It has been done this way for ages because fish tends to want to stick or flake apart while grilling. With GrillGrates you can now grill salmon beginning with the flesh side down on the grates. This method will give you gorgeous sear marks on the salmon which are also quite tasty and add texture to an otherwise soft protein. The sear marks are basically caramelized protein flavor bars. For an added bonus try drizzling a tasty marinade or salad dressing over the fish while it is still on the grill. The moisture will sizzle in the GrillGrate valleys and create a flavorful steam bath that adds an extra pop of flavor!
