Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat grill to medium-low heat.
  2. Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil onto each filet and rub onto all sides. Then drizzle 1 teaspoon soy sauce onto each filet and repeat.
  3. In a small bowl, combine garlic powder, onion powder, ginger, paprika and black pepper. Sprinkle evenly onto all sides of each filet.
  4. Allow to marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  5. Just before grilling, carefully apply olive oil to grill rack via paper towel or grill brush.
  6. Grill salmon for 5-7 minutes on each side (depending on filet thickness--thinner filets will take less time to cook through) or until cooked through. Try to only turn the filets once to prevent the fish from breaking apart.
  7. Remove to a serving platter and enjoy!
