For the Salmon:

  • 1– 1 ½ lbs. salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces
  • Olive oil

For the House Seasoning:

  • ¼ c. garlic powder
  • ¼ c. kosher salt
  • ¼ c. dried parsley
  • ¼ c. dried minced onion
  • ¼ c. dried basil


Prepare the House Seasoning:

  • Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

Prepare the Salmon:

  • Rub each piece of salmon with olive oil and sprinkle with house seasoning, to taste (I use about 1 teaspoon of olive oil and ¼ teaspoon of seasoning per piece).

Grill the Salmon:

  • Heat coals, gas grill, or grill pan to medium heat. Place salmon on the grill. Cover and grill over medium heat for about 5 minutes per side (maybe a few more minutes, depending on the thickness of your fish). The salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork.



Cooking Just for Two? Purchase about ½ lb. of salmon and cut it into 2 separate pieces. The rest of the cooking instructions remain the same.
