Next-Level BBQ: Salmon on the Grill

Nothing is more satisfying on a warm summer night than pouring a glass of wine, leaving the stove behind and stepping outside to grill while the sprinklers kick on.

Which is why, if I can BBQ it, I will. Salmon, with its thick skin, holds its form on the grill so it’s an ideal option for backyard cooking. And not only is salmon well-suited for cooking out, it’s also a little bit more exciting than plain old burgers. Check out our tastiest Easy Bbq Recipes for inventive ways to mix it up at your next cookout!

To get a perfect char and flaky texture on my grilled salmon, I grab some foil and cooking spray. This easy trick below works every time:
