A grilled salmon can be phenomenal when cooked right. First of all, make sure the salmon is ultra fresh — which should be easy this time of year.
The goal is to grill it just enough to cook it (until it’s opaque and light pink) without overcooking it. You want it to be moist, tender, and flavorful.
When cut at its thickest part, the perfectly grilled salmon appears light pink throughout, with a center that us still moist and dark.
