Oct 1, 2020 | Wild Caught AK Sockeye Salmon

2 Servings

Season both fillets with salt, pepper and olive oil.

Place salmon on the grill, skin side down. 

Cook for 6 to 8 minutes, if the skin sticks leave it for another minute or two. It will come off easily as the skin crisps.

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups baby arugula
