  • Blackstone Griddle


  • ¼ cup soy sauce or gluten-free tamari
  • ¼ cup oil like avocado oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder.
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 16 ounces salmon filets
  • Oil for the griddle
  • For serving: Freshly squeezed lemon juice


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, avocado oil, brown sugar, basil, thyme, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Place the fish in a zip-top bag or shallow dish and pour the marinade over it.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Blackstone Griddle

  • Preheat the Blackstone griddle to medium-low to low heat (about 350° F).
  • Liberally coat the griddle with oil.
  • Add the fish, with the skin side of the salmon down if it has skin.
  • Cook for about 2 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until desired doneness. (Actual cook time will depend on the size and thickness of the salmon.)
  • Drizzle with freshly squeezed lemon juice and serve.

Pan-Frying Instructions

  • Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat and coat with oil.
  • Add the fish to the skillet, salmon skin side down.
  • Cook the fish for a total cooking time of about 4 to 5 minutes, flipping halfway through. Use an instant read thermometer to make sure that the center of the flesh has reached the desired doneness.
