Salmon with Barbecue Sauce
4 – 6 ounce salmon fillets
1 teaspoon granulated onion
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
½ teaspoon sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 cup barbecue sauce
Preheat oven or grill to 350 degrees F
Wash fillets and pat dry with a paper towel. In a small bowl mix together the granulated onion, garlic, and salt. Sprinkle fillets with the seasoning mixture on both sides then season with the freshly ground pepper. Cover and refrigerate at least an hour or overnight.
Remove fillets from refrigerator and let them sit on the counter approximately 30 minutes before cooking.
If cooking in the oven: Place fillets on a baking sheet or pan. coat fillets with barbecue sauce and cook 13 – 15 depending on thickness. Rule of thumb is to cook fish for 10 minutes per inch, turning halfway through cooking time. If the fish is under ½ inch thick, you don’t need to turn it over.
If grilling: Brush grill grates with canola oil then place filets on the hot grill.
Grill from about 4- 6 minutes per side (depending on the thickness). And remember, it’s better to under cook than over cook.
Note: Once you place salmon on the hot grill, leave it alone, let it cook long enough for the grill to release it naturally 3 – 4 minutes.
If using a charcoal grill wait until ambers are ash-colored before placing on the fillets.
