The richness of perfectly grilled salmon is a perfect pairing for the fresh vinaigrette in this Grilled Salmon and with Tomato Caper Vinaigrette.

When you have a gas grill, grilling is not any more difficult than turning on a stove. As a matter of fact, it might even be easier because there are usually no pots or pans involved. I love my gas grill. I know to some it’s sacrilegious to even call it grilling without wood or charcoal, but if I had to mess with that every time I wanted to grill, there wouldn’t be much grilling going on around here. Plus a gas grill makes weeknight grilling so much more approachable. Like this Salmon with Tomato Caper Vinaigrette from Bobby Flay’s Boy Gets Grill.
This is a perfect example of easy weeknight grilling – or easy weekend grilling. Perfectly ripe tomatoes, red onions and capers are paired with fresh herb vinaigrette. You can make that ahead of time and store in the fridge until you’re ready to grill the salmon, then just bring it to room temperature. With this flavorful vinaigrette, the salmon doesn’t need anything more than a little olive oil and salt and pepper. The directions on the recipe are to cook the salmon on one side and then flip and cook on the other. My salmon filets were cooked perfectly without the flip, so you can decide whether to flip or not.
Grilled Salmon with Tomato Caper Vinaigrette
Spicy grilled salmon gets topped with fresh tomato caper vinaigrette.
- 4 8-ounce salmon filets with the skin
- canola oil
- salt and fresh ground black pepper
Combine all the ingredients for the vinaigrette in a medium bowl. Let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. If made in advance, store in fridge and remove and let come to room temperature and mix well before serving.
Heat the grill to medium-high heat.
Brush the salmon on both sides with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill skin side down for 3-4 minutes (this was enough for me). Turn and move to a cooler part of the grill to cook for 3-4 more minutes.
Serve the salmon with the vinaigrette over the top.
