Fresh Salmon on Gas Grill

For this you need 1 1/2 inch thick salmon steaks.
Fillets are too thin for direct grilling although
you can grill them in foil with good results.
Here I placed the salmon right on the hot grate
to get a few grill marks on both sides.
The outside was opaque while the inside was rare.
Perfectly cooked if I do say so myself.

2 (1 1/2" thick) salmon steaks
2 teaspoons soy sauce
dashes of ground black pepper
Cooking spray for grill grates
Butter and lemon juice to taste

Preheat gas grill to super high heat.
While grill is heating marinate salmon
in a small dish with the soy sauce>
Spray cooking spray on grill and then
Place the salmon steaks on grill.
Sprinkle with ground black pepper.
Cook uncovered for about 5 minutes.
Using a flat metal spatula, flip steaks
to cook for 2 minutes on the other side.
Turn off gas, lower the grill cover and
let the steaks continue to cook 2 minutes.
Remove steaks to a plate and cover with
a tent of aluminum foil to allow the steaks
to completely cook from carry over heat.
Serve with butter and lemon juice.
