BC Wild Salmon BBQ & Shoreline Cooking
There's nothing like PLANKED Wild Salmon on the BBQ.
Salmon is meant to be cooked over hot coals. The heat sears in juices, and the smoke gives it an outdoor aroma that takes us back to our childhood.
Wild Salmon is incredible in the backyard on the BBQ, and it's even better by the shoreline with a cool breeze on a hot day.
It's also the easiest way to cook fish, as long as you know a few secrets. For example, oil your grill surface to keep your salmon from sticking. An easy way to oil your grill is to cut off a thick slice of potatoe, dip it in oil and rub it on your hot grill just before you put on your fish. Toss the potatoe on the grill for a nice little appie.
Secret #2 - Don't overcook your wild salmon. It cooks fast, sometimes in just a few minutes, so watch it carefully. If it sticks to your grill leave it until it lifts off easily, but don't wait to long because the difference between perfection and dried leather is only about one minute. You can also test it by seeing how well it flakes. Gently pull it apart with a knife while it's still on the grill. It should appear opaque and not glossy.
When choosing or filleting your wild salmon make sure it is cut all the same thickness. If not, it will cook unevenly, drying out some sections and leaving others undercooked. Don't forget to add a squeeze of lemon while cooking for a little zest, and to help keep your Wild Salmon moist.
