Garlic BBQ Grilled Salmon
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 6-8 depending on the size of your filet
Recommended Pellets: Hickory, Mesquite, or Maple
1 salmon filet, skin on, pinbones removed
1 bottle of Traeger's Regular BBQ Sauce
2 tbs of fresh garlic, minced
4 sprigs of green onion, chopped on a diagonal. (2 sprigs for the sauce, and 2 for garnish)
Traeger's Salmon Shake
Season the top of your filet with Traeger's salmon shake. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, 2 sprigs of chopped green onion and BBQ sauce. Set aside.
When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke for 4-5 minutes to establish the fire. Close the lid, turn the temperature setting to High and allow the grill to preheat for 10-15 minutes.
Before grilling, brush the salmon with the BBQ sauce mixture. Place directly on the grill, skin side down and grill for approximately 5 minutes on each side until fish is firm, flaky, and opaque.
Sprinkle with additional sliced green onions and serve.
