IN THE KITCHEN

Step 1
Combine marinade ingredients in a medium bowl and mix thoroughly.

Step 2
Place salmon in a shallow baking dish, pour marinade over the salmon and let marinate for 30-60 minutes, turning salmon once. Remove salmon from marinade and blot gently with paper towels to remove excess marinade.

Step 3 
Generously brush the salmon with oil and season evenly with salt and pepper.

Step 4 
Brush the cooking grates clean.

Step 5
Grill the salmon, flesh side down first, over direct high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until you can lift the fillets with tongs off the grate without sticking, 6 to 8 minutes.

Step 6
Turn the fillets and cook them to your desired doneness, 2 to 3 minutes more for medium rare

Step 6
Slide a spatula between the skin and flesh, and transfer the fillets to serving plates.
