Barbecue-salmon a great taste treat on the grill

Barbecue-Salmon is one of my favorite fishes in the world. It is tasty no matter how you prepare but when you grill salmon it is just wonderful. Not to mention its healthy with omega 3 oils that protect your heart.

Why do fish have these oils? its to protect them from the cold water so their blood will not clot? It works the same way in people.

I just love the taste and when you grill salmon it is a very quick process so easy to do. My girlfriend used to love to eat only carne asado tacos and ribs that I barbecued on the smoker but after I started barbecuing salmon she was hooked.

How to barbecue-salmon on the grill

Its very easy to barbecue-salmon on the grill.

You need some olive oil and grated parmesan cheese

Here is what you do. Get some nice salmon fillets-I like them better then salmon steaks from your grocer.

They are delicious one salmon fillet lasts me for three days.

Get the fire going hot on the grill. Go for medium heat around 350degrees .Throw a water soaked piece of alder wood on the fire.

Brush your salmon fillet with olive oil-healthy and tasty.

Place your salmon fillet with the skin down facing the fire and start to grill. Close the lid. After 4 minutes you can turn the fillet over. But it's not necessary-the fish will cook in around another 4 minutes.

In another 3 minutes it should be done you can check the insides make sure it's not a clear red color.

Salmon flesh is pink and clear prior to cooking and will become opaque when done. It is best to test the salmon meat using a thermometer probe just the way you do with ribs. The temperature should be internally 130 with the thermometer probe. It is best to eat this salmon sprinkled with grated Parmasan cheese. Now enjoy!

Thats how I got around that.

Let me recommend one great grill from weber that is portable. There is a grill called the Little joey which is a good charcoal grill.
