  1. Oil the grill grates

    Fold a paper towel into fourths and coat with canola oil. Wipe the cold grill grates with the paper towel to create a non-sticky surface.

  2. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat

    Turn the grill on, and preheat to medium-high. If the grill has a lid, close the lid to trap heat.

  3. Wash and dry the salmon

    Place the salmon under cold water, and rinse. Use a paper towel to pat the salmon dry.

  4. Season the salmon

    Sprinkle kosher salt and cracked black pepper on the flesh side of the salmon.

  5. Place salmon skin-side down on the grill

    A 1-inch piece of salmon will take approximately six to 10 minutes to cook. First, allow the salmon to cook skin-side down for four to six minutes.

  6. Flip the salmon

    Use a flat heatproof spatula to flip the salmon, and cook for another two to four minutes.
