Salmon on the Griddle

This is an easy way to feed a crowd...and it was pretty tasty too! :)
I am thinking up ways to use the Blackstone griddle other than bacon and eggs and burgers.
I oiled the fish well with olive oil, then seasoned with a dry rub. I used a low sugar rub to keep the fish from browning too much while cooking.

I trimmed the salmon down for even cooking. (I cook the strip too and eat it as a snack while the rest of the slab cooks)

started the salmon "meat" side down...on medium/low heat.

added a couple of foil wrapped bricks to flatten the slab and for even cooking...

Watched the fish cook from the bottom up.

I watch the juice rise to keep an eye on cooking progress...

Then carefully turn the salmon over....I use two large spatulas for this.

While the salmon cooks, I toast split bagels....

This was a self serve breakfast. I set out cream cheese, minced onions, scallions, capers, etc.. Everyone gets to build their own. :)

I topped this one with cream cheese, onions, capers, salmon and cracked black pepper...

Tasted great!!
This isn't smoked salmon, so if you want smoked flavor add smoked salt or a smoked rub. Shoot, there are many options on which way to go flavor-wise with this.
The Griddle did a nice job. I made sure the slab of salmon and the griddle were oiled to prevent sticking (just precautionary) I had no problems.

Went to Dodge City this weekend. I hadn't been up that way in about a year. I hit the casino (I'm not a gambler), but had fun on the penny machines. At least I broke even. :)

Hope everyone had a nice weekend, thanks for stopping by!

Don't you be fritterin' away them pennies, girl. You'll wind up broke, and cain't afford any more grills.

Looks really good. I've used that brick method with chicken in a frying pan, and it turned out great. If you don't wrap them in foil, you get some interesting flavors. You know: moldy leaves, centipedes, etc.
Fresh dill would be a fine thing on that bagel, too.

Thanks for all the posting you're doing, and have a great Christmas.
