We set the coals of our Big Green Egg off to the side for an indirect fire under the salmon. Using non stick foil we made a lipped edged surface for the salmon to lay on while grilling. We really like the taste of this salmon. This salmon has a spicy little Cajun kick to it and the honey is the perfect sweet to the overall flavor. This blackened salmon is the perfect recipe to try. Enjoy! Diane
