2. Preparation Variants for Salmon Grilling
Further down the recipe I show you the variant of preparation in the oven. Therefore, I do not go to this quick number variant here. Here follow the variants grill grate and pan 🙂
2.1 Prepare Salmon Fillet on the Grill Grate
With this method, you can prepare the fillet with or without the skin. I like it better without skin. The use of skewers has proven itself.
I always soak the wooden skewers in cold water for 30 minutes. Then I skewer the fillets in portions on the sticks.
This is so to speak a portion plug-in fish. The fillet can be placed elegantly on the grill grate and turning is child’s play.
2.2 Grill salmon fillet in the pan
You’ve probably seen these special pans with the grill pattern. You can use such a pan.
The real BBQ master chef shakes his head at something like this, he only likes gas or charcoal 🙂 The transition from frying to grilling is virtually fluid. Do not add fat to the hot pan, put the dry fish fillet and cook at high temperature.
Grilling is cooking by means of radiant or contact heat. Be careful with cured products: Nitrosamines are produced.Definition from Chef Thomas Sixt
