A Classic Pairing

Slow Grilled King Salmon with Stone-Ground Mustard | Sitka Salmon Shares

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 25 min
Total time: 30 min
Serves: 4


  • 1 pound king salmon
  • 3 tablespoons stone ground mustard
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • Pinch of salt


Start it at a low temperature, aiming for a 300° grilling temperature.

Remove the root-end of the scallions. Brush lightly with olive oil. Cook on grill until green ends have char marks and white ends are beginning to turn translucent.

Remove scallions from grill, let cool, then chop finely and mix with olive oil and mustard. Add salt & pepper and mix until blended.

Generously cover the flesh-side of the salmon with the mustard rub. Place skin-side down on the grill (no need to flip!) and cook 20-24 minutes.

After 15 minutes, use a butter knife or you finger and gently probe the thickest part of your salmon. If it flakes easily, it's done.

Serve hot off the grill with more mustard spread, grilled potatoes, fresh bread, and your favorite beer.

Marsh's pro cooking tip: If your grill doesn’t go as low as 300°, turn off half of the burners and cook the fish away from direct heat. You don’t have to flip the salmon when you cook it slow at a low temperature.
