Salmon on the Big Green Egg
This is my no muss, no fuss, easy peasy way of cooking salmon on the Big Green Egg.
  • Good quality salmon, ½ pound per person
  • 2 Tablespoons oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Dill Butter, optional
  1. Set your Big Green Egg for a raised direct cook.
  2. Preheat to 350F.
  3. In the meantime, wash and dry the salmon.
  4. Season the flesh side with salt and pepper.
  5. Liberally oil the skin side and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Carefully oil the grate of the Big Green Egg and lay the salmon skin side down.
  7. Top with dill butter or fresh dill and butter or your herb of choice or nothing at all.
  8. Cook for about 15 minutes or until the internal temperature is 125-130F.
  9. The salmon should flake along the muscle fibers and be translucent in the center.
