Bruschetta Topping

  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced into 1/4-in cubes
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh minced basil
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste

Grilled Salmon

  • 1-1/2 lbs skin-on salmon fillets (about 4 6-8 oz fillets)
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Kosher salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 1 small loaf French bread, cut in half widthwise and then in half lengthwise
  • Balsamic glaze and additional fresh minced basil for topping


Bruschetta Topping

  • In a medium bowl, combine bruschetta ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste. Place in refrigerator while you prepare the salmon.

Grilled Salmon

  • Clean grill grates well, lightly grease, and preheat to 450F*. Rub salmon fillets all over with 2 tablespoons olive oil and season well with salt and pepper. Brush remaining olive oil over cut-side of 4 French bread pieces.
  • Once grill is heated to 450F, lay salmon skin-side down on grill. Close grill lid and allow salmon to cook undisturbed 4-6 minutes until you can lift the fillets off the grates without salmon sticking. Flip salmon to opposite side and cook salmon an additional 2-4 minutes until salmon registers 125-130F.
  • Transfer salmon to a clean platter and set aside for a moment. Place French bread cut side-down on grill and cook 2-3 minutes until lightly toasted. Arrange bread on a separate plate.
  • Spoon bruschetta topping over top of grilled salmon and top with a few drizzles of balsamic glaze and basil. Serve immediately with grilled bread and enjoy!


Salmon is best if served immediately after made.
