  2. Check Salmon for any small or fine bones and remove them.. Brush fillets with olive oil on all sides, Or tuna, or any thick white fish.. Add a little salt and pepper.. Lay fillet on grill grate away from the direct heat. You will be grilling the fish for about 20-25 minutes Or until salmon is opaque.
