Step 1

Carefully run your finger up the center of the fillet (against the grain) and if you find any pin bones, pull them out with a small pair of needle-nosed pliers.

Step 2

Pat the fillets dry and set aside.

Step 3

In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and lemon juice.

Step 4

Lightly spread lemony mayo on both sides of the fillets. Set aside.

Step 5

Heat the grill (or grill pan) to medium heat or medium-high heat if using a grill pan or copper sheet.

Step 6

Place the fillets on the grill, bone side down and grill for 5 minutes.

Step 7

Turn fillets over and cook another 3 to 4 minutes depending on how thick they are.

Step 8

Sprinkle with parsley and dill, if desired, to serve.

Tips & Variations

  • If you don't want to grill directly on grates, you may want a grill pan or copper grilling sheet.



10 stars all the way for this simple and delicious summertime salmon. It was a snap to prepare and grilled up quickly. The flavor was amazing! The blend of mayo and lemon along with the char grilled flavor is amazing. Into my Best of 2021 file it goes! Thank you!
