Grilled salmon takes a short amount of time to prepare and to cook. You can use your favourite seasonings to spice up the fish, as almost all herbs and spices complement salmon. When grilled in the oven, salmon goes well with a green salad, pasta, seasonal vegetables and white wine.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Grill pan
  • 1/8 cup vegetable oil
  • Paper towel
  • 1 tsp lemon pepper
  • 1 cup butter
  • Saucepan
  • Seasonings
  • Wide spatula
  • Serving dish

  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 232 degrees Celsius.

  2. 2

    Grease a grill pan by putting vegetable oil on a paper towel and rubbing the towel on the grill pan. Place the salmon on the pan.

  3. 3

    Sprinkle the salmon with lemon pepper.

  4. 4

    Melt the butter in a saucepan on the hob. Add 1/2 tsp of each of your favourite seasonings to the melted butter, and stir. Consider garlic, thyme, pepper and basil. Never add salt to salmon before it is cooked or while it is cooking. It will dry out the fish.

  5. 5

    Pour half of the butter mixture over the salmon.

  6. 6

    Bake the salmon for six minutes. Carefully turn the fish over, using a wide spatula.

  7. 7

    Pour the remaining butter mixture on the salmon, and cook for another six minutes. Take the grill pan out of the oven, and transfer the salmon to a dish, again using a wide spatula.

Tips and warnings

  • Salmon is finished cooking when it can easily flake apart with a fork. You will have to adjust the cooking time depending on the thickness of the salmon.
