  • 2 pounds Alaska coho salmon (De-boned)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons fresh chives
  • 1 lime (thinly sliced)
  • ¼ teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
  • 2 teaspoons avocado oil


  • Preheat the grill to 375º F.
  • Place the thawed coho salmon filets on a plate. Coat with salt, herbs, and sliced limes.
  • Drizzle avocado oil on top. 
  • Place the fillets onto a large piece of aluminum foil. Add in any vegetables you want to cook with the fish.
  • Wrap the fish in the foil packets.
  • Grill for 8 minutes until done. You will know the fish is done when it is firm to the touch. Cooking time may be a little longer if you use a thicker cut of salmon.
  • Serve hot.



More ways to cook salmon:
Grilling this coho salmon recipe is my favorite way to serve it. However, if you don’t have access to a grill or it’s cold outside you can cook the salmon a few other ways. Here are some ideas:
  • Pan-Seared - Put avocado oil in the pan and heat it, add the coho salmon. Cook for 4-6 minutes then flip the salmon over. If it sticks to the pan, it needs to cook a couple of minutes longer. Once it easily releases from the pan, you can flip it and cook for 3 additional minutes or as long as needed.
  • Baked - Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake coho salmon on a non-stick baking sheet for 11-14 minutes.
  • Broiled - Place salmon on a sheet pan or moist cedar plank and place in broiler for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes, check salmon and turn off the broiler. Allow fish to stand in the broiler for 2-5 additional minutes, and it should be done.
