3. Start your fire
– This is on my Big Green Egg (look for future posts on how I like to start my egg) but could also be done over many other fires and grills

4. Put them over your white ambers
– There should be no flames hitting the fish.
– Grill over the fire 6-8 minutes

5. Look for the sides of the Salmon to begin to develop white bubbles (this is just protein (albumin) that seeps out of the fish.

6. Using a good spatula separate the flesh of the fish from the outer skin which should now be crispy and easy to do by going underneath the fillet
