How To Grill and Sauté Salmon

We teamed up with Lowes Foods' corporate Chef to provide you with some tips and tricks on how to cook the perfect salmon this weekend. 

P.S. We suggest topping it with Fresh Peach Salsa from Pick & Prep. You'll thank us later. 

Suns out, grills out! Turn up the heat this weekend with this Grilled Salmon recipe. 

SEASONING

  • Season with desired items
  • At the very least, Chef Joe recommends seasoning your salmon with cracked red and/or black pepper

GRILLING

  • Preheat grill on high and brush grates (using aluminum foil can help clean the grate)
  • Lightly oil each side of the salmon prior to cooking - putting oil to salmon not to the grill - this will help prevent sticking
  • Typically 10 minute per inch of fish is recommended (cooking to at least 145° is recommend)

Because there really is such thing as too much fun in the sun

(or so we've been told..) 

SEASONING 

  • Season with desired items
  • Serve with items that are in season such as, cumin, dill, garlic, ginger, soy, tarragon, Dijon mustard, lemon juice and pepper
  • At the very least, Chef Joe recommends seasoning your salmon with cracked red and/or black pepper

SAUTEING 

  • Heat pan on high heat with a light coating of oil 
  • Season salmon and lightly coat in flour (this will help build a nice color and crispness to the outside layer, helping to seal in the juices)
  • Place in pan skin-side-down first (you want to place the fish in the pan just as the oil reaches optimal heat; this is the smoke point)
  • Once skin is crisp and golden brown turn and sear other side 
  • Note: Once you've placed the fish on a hot surface, move slightly from side-to-side. This in addition to high heat will help to prevent sticking
