Lightly coat or spray the filet with oil.  Olive oil is OK, avocado oil or duck fat oil is preferred. 


Season the flesh side(s) of the filets.  


Pre-heat the grill to high. 


Oil (spray or wipe) the GrillGrates with Canola or Duck fat IF the GrillGrates appear dry or are not well seasoned yet. 


Place the filets on a hot GrillGrate at an angle to the rails just as you would a steak. 


Allow to sear for 2-3 minutes.


Use the GrateTool to lift and twist the filet (same side down) to put a nice cross-hatch on the flesh.


Grill another 2-3 minutes. 


Flip the filets with the GrateTool and see how nicely the salmon sears.  


If your filet has skin on one side you may want to start with skin down for 1/3 of the cook, then sear the flesh side to be up and ready for the pour. 


Pour marinade over the salmon allowing it to spill over into the valleys.  You can baste with a brush but pouring is more fun! It is OK to make a mess in the valleys, do not worry about flare-ups. 


Grill to finish by observing the flesh color as it goes to all pink and by testing with an instant-read thermometer.  I usually remove at 135-140°F. Enjoy the sizzling marinade!
