Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4 people


  • 4 8 oz Salmon Filets with skin on
  • 2/3 cup Sweet Baby Ray's with Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Lime Juice
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/3 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/3 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce


  • Mix all the ingredients listed above (except salmon) in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Cut sauce in half.  Use one half of the sauce to marinate the raw salmon and the other half to baste the grilling salmon. 
  • Preheat your grill to medium heat. 
  • Use a brush to apply a thick coating of the bbq sauce to each salmon filet.  Note:  Be sure to check your salmon if you use a brush with bristles.  Sometimes the bristles come out and you end up with bristles in your meal.  I hate it when I find bristles in my food!  Use a silicone basting brush as opposed to one with bristles to avoid this problem.  
  • Place a sheet of aluminum foil over the grill grate then add the filets to the grill. 
  • Cook on your grill at medium heat for approximately 12 - 15 minutes.  For food safety purposes, make sure you grill the salmon to an internal temperature of 145 F.       
    Alternative Cooking Method:
    In case it's cold and rainy outside or you just don't have a grill, here is a grilling alternative. 
    Place your salmon on a greased baking dish and broil at hi heat for 4 - 5 minutes.   
    The method works really well and you may find that you prefer broiling to grilling.         
  • Remove the filets when they flake easily with a fork. 


You know it really depends on what you are in the mood to eat.  I really like grilled squash and zucchini with grill salmon, but some mashed potatoes go great too.
Like most fish species, salmon doesn't reheat very well.  If you have leftover salmon, my suggestion is to add it to a salad or by itself at room temperature.
