How To  Grill Salmon

Cooked over an open fire, Nordic fire-grilled salmon is an elegant and captivating dish. See my step-by-step how to guide to set this up!

Whether you are camping or grilling salmon on a charcoal barbecue, this unique salmon grilling method is going to be a game changer.

Soak grilling planks in water for at least one hour.

Fire up your charcoal barbecue or campfire, getting it to a high heat and an open flame.

Using an electric drill, drill holes along the short edge of two grilling planks. The holes should be about double the diameter of your chosen craft wire.

Pass wire through both grilling planks, tying them together - this should look like a spiral-bound notebook.

Lay one salmon fillet along each grilling plank, facing each other (the two fish should be on the inside of a triangle created by the planks when they stand).

Secure each piece of fish to its grilling plank using several rows of craft wire. Turn plank face-side down to ensure fish stays on.

When the charcoals are red and burning, add smoker wood chips, this will release the aroma of the wood

Stand grilling planks on top of barbeque or open flame campfire, creating the shape of a triangle.

Let fish cook for 10-15 minutes, stoking the fire periodically to maintain a lively, strong flame.

When fish has cooked to medium-well, remove from flame. Fish will continue cooking as it rests, so take care not to overcook.

Remove fish from planks, and serve!
