last nights salmon on the small

I don't see a lot of fish pics so I figured I toss up last nights cook here.  

I had three small filets of Salmon from the Faroe Islands.  I got the small piping hot with a raised grill, nice and clean, I oil the grill lightly and then put the salmon steaks skin side down with only salt on the salmon.  I flip it once and done.  They were perfectly cooked, I can't stand over cooked fish.

nice color!  

sizzle sizzle, crispin' up the skin

    That looks so good, my family treats salmon like chicken so 99% of the time it's way overcooked because either they are making it or I am serving them.  That is just how I like it.  Nicely done!

    I am with you, I like my salmon that temperate, but my mother in law cooks salmon to the sane consistency as canned salmon..

  • Thanks guys,

    I'll try to take some more pics next time.  Basically I let it cook on the skin side the entire time and do one flip just to give it some marks.  I also salt the skin heavily o dehydrate it and make sure it crisps up nicely.  The skin acts like an insulator to some extent and keeps the flesh from burning.
