About this Grilled Salmon

Salmon recipes are some of my favorite! There are so many ways to make and enjoy this health seafood recipe! Smoked salmon is my favorite way to make salmon, but you can make delicious air fryer salmon, or other grilled salmon recipes like our grilled sockeye salmon.

With some great flavor combinations and a little imagination, I’m always amazed at how easy it is to jazz up seafood.

This grilled salmon with sriracha sauce is a lively combination of grilled fish with a lively sriracha sauce.

Fresh cucumber balances the heat of this spicy salmon recipe. Sriracha and some low sodium soy sauce made for a healthy sauce for salmon.

Why You Will Love this Grilled Sriracha Salmon

  • It’s easy to make. A couple of salmon fillets, some very ordinary ingredients and a hot grill and you’re in business!
  • It’s full of health. Salmon is loaded with Omega 3 fatty acids and protein. It’s great for you!
  • It’s full of flavor. Soy sauce, dijon mustard, and a little kick all work together and make this entrée sing with taste!

I was solo for an evening, as Scott was at a work function and so I gave my friend April a call and invited her over to eat, drink, and make some merriment with me.

Pair this grilled salmon with your favorite white wine.

Salmon is a rich and oily fish; it pairs beautifully with full-bodied white wines and lighter reds.

It proved to be a fun evening of new foods. We put this easy dish for the grill together along with a very healthy side of Blitva (Swiss Chard and Potatoes.)

Finding fresh seafood is a near-impossibility here in the mid-west. Even our fish that is advertised as “fresh” is almost always fresh-frozen.

Not the same thing. Still, with some great flavor combos and a little imagination, I’m always amazed at how easy it is to jazz up seafood.

How Much is Salmon?

This recipe for grilled salmon can be made for about $15 for two.

This is probably a third of what you would expect to pay at a good restaurant, should you be lucky enough to find one that could put out a meal of this quality and taste.

The other good news: You can make this at home on your grill without having to go out.

How to Buy Salmon

You can usually find salmon fillets at your grocery store or fish monger if there is one close to you.

Or, you can use a company like Wild Alaskan Company which will deliver fresh seafood to your door. We use this company because they offer high quality seafood that is convenient and reasonably priced! (Any purchases made through this affiliate link earn us a small commission.)

Enjoy a flavorful and spicy Grilled Sriracha Salmon with this quick and easy recipe. Marinated in a mix of olive oil, Dijon mustard, soy sauce, garlic, and sriracha, the salmon is grilled to perfection and garnished with cucumber shavings. Perfect for a dinner that’s both healthy and packed with bold flavors.
Prep: 30 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Total: 40 minutes
Yield: 2 servings



  • Combine all ingredients in small mixing bowl, except for salmon and cucumber. Mix well.
  • Place salmon on flat plate, using half the marinade, apply an even coat to salmon and place in refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Cover and refrigerate reserved marinade.
  • Apply non-stick coating or oil to grill grates, then heat to medium-high setting.
  • Using tongs, place salmon fillets on grill, skin side down.
  • Grill for 8-10 minutes or until fish is pink and flaky.
  • Serve on pre-warmed plates, drizzle reserved marinade on each portion, garnish with cucumber shavings.


For the Best Grilled Salmon:
  • Preheat the Grill: Ensure the grill is preheated to medium-high heat before adding the salmon. This helps achieve a good sear and prevents sticking.
  • Use Oil and Seasonings: Brush the salmon with oil and season it generously. This enhances flavor and prevents the fish from drying out.
  • Grill with Skin Side Down: Start grilling with the skin side down to protect the flesh from direct heat. This also makes it easier to flip the salmon without breaking it apart.
