- 4 to 6 pieces of skinless salmon fillet, approximately 6 oz each
- 1/3 C olive oil
- ¼ C Grilla AP Rub
- ¼ C honey
- 2 TB lime juice
- 2 TB Sriracha
Use a paper towel to pat salmon dry. Brush fish with olive oil and dust with rub. Preheat Grilla Grill to 300 degrees. Place fish on grill flat-side up. Once you have grill marks, flip the fish over. It should only take about 5 to 8 minutes per side. You can check for grill marks by lifting one corner of the fish with a spatula. Be very gentle as the fish will become more delicate as it cooks.
Once you flip the fish, start brushing the glaze on. Once the fish starts to feel firm and has grill marks on both sides, it is done. If you like your salmon more rare, feel free to pull it off the grill earlier. You don’t want to overcook it, but the glaze will help salvage any drier parts.
Serve the fish with the extra honey sriracha salmon glaze.
Awesome Substitutes for Heart-Healthy Salmon
After you make our honey sriracha salmon a few times and get the rhythm of cooking fish on your wood pellet smoker grill, you can start to make substitutions. Although white fish can be a tempting substitute, it tends to be a little too tender to cook on the grill like salmon. If you decide to opt for a white fish like cod or haddock, cook it in or on aluminum foil placed directly on the grates.
Other fine fish-swapping possibilities including swordfish, tuna and bluefish. Each of these fish hold up well to grilling, although you will still need to babysit them slightly. Plus, they add different flavors to the finished result.
Tricks for Working With Salmon and Other Fish
Perhaps it has been a while since you cooked fish at all, let alone on your Silverbac or Grilla. Keep the following fish hints in mind for a picture-perfect recipe everyone will love:
- Buy fish fresh: Never skimp on this. The fresher the ingredients, the fresher the flavors. Of course, flash-frozen salmon that has been thawed should also work for this glazed grilled salmon recipe.
- Know that fish keeps cooking after you take it off the grill: Never cook your honey sriracha lime salmon too long because the flesh will dry out when it is settling after removal from the grill.
- Treat fish tenderly when taking it off the grill grates: Fish is flaky by nature and deserves a little more TLC than a steak or chicken breast. Try to remove it from the grill carefully.
