I went to Fire Island last week with some of my closest high school friends and their kids. While sitting on the beach, I was talking to my friend Kim about recipe ideas (yes, food is always on my mind) and she mentioned this salmon dish she serves at a restaurant she works at. I loved everything about it, the next day I picked up some salmon and whipped this up! This turned out so good, I know you’ll agree!

How To Grill Salmon

To make foolproof salmon on the grill, I use salmon with the skin on, and lay the salmon skin side down directly over the grill. Cover the grill and let it cook just like I would in the oven, no turning! Depending on the thickness, it should take about 10 minutes, then remove it from the grill and discard the charred skin (it’s ok of the skin sticks to the grill, the point is the fish doesn’t break and protects the meat).

Ingredients

  • 4 wild salmon fillets, 6 oz each
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • black pepper

For the avocado bruschetta: (makes 2 1/4 cups)

  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion

  • 2 medium vine ripe tomatoes

Instructions

  • Combine onion, olive oil, balsamic, 1/4 tsp kosher salt and pepper. Set aside a 5 minutes.
  • Chop tomatoes and place in a large bowl. Combine with garlic, basil, onion-balsamic combo and additional 1/8 tsp salt and pepper to taste. Set aside and let it sit at least 10 minutes.
  • Preheat a gas grill to medium-high. Oil the grates generously to prevent the fish from sticking.
