When I cook the salmon on the Foreman grill it comes out nice and flaky and moist. I think that is because it cooks really fast. I also brush some canola oil on it so the fish does not stick. And I keep the grill closed because it cooks from both sides which helps it cook faster.

Believe in yourself!

I love salmon, ahi and most other seafood. My favorite way of seasoning fish and most other meats is with just a sprinkle of garlic powder and lemon pepper (no salt as I keep my sodium levels low, but use garlic salt if you want), but sometimes I use other flavors of marinades, rubs, etc.

On the cool or stormy days or when I'm really pressed for time, I cook anything I can (fish, chicken, veggies, etc.) using my Foreman grill--just as I do on warm days using the outdoor grill. The Foreman grill makes it so easy and fast--the food cooks from both sides and you don't have to flip it at all. But, just as using an outdoor grill or really any other style of cooking--if you cook it too long it will be dry. The time will depend on the type of food and the thickness--I keep a sheet of notepaper taped to the inside of a cabinet door above where I use the Foreman and note the time(s) to cook various items on the Foreman.

I love my Foreman--it's like my microwave, I wouldn't want to be without one!

Close it so the fish will cook evenly. I cooked mine on medium for about 4-5 minutes, but since I like my tuna a little rare I should have cooked it for a little less time.

Oh my gosh...i love AHI steaks!! i am going to have to start trying these on the George. I never cook salmon or ahi because i don't really know how, but i love cooking on my George. This may sound funny, but would you close it or just leave it open and flip the fish?

I have found that if you cook something too long on the Foreman it does tend to dry out. But that's the case with anything you cook, even when using the oven or stovetop.

Ahi Tuna steaks are good cooked on the Foreman also!

The fish doesn't come out dry at all. You need to use cooking spray (i.e. Pam) and do not cook for very long (5 to 7 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish).

Hadn't thought of cooking fish on the Foreman. I'll have to give it a try. I usually bbq my salmon as we don't really like the smell of fish cooking in the house.

I also like to cook fish on my George Foreman. I season my salmon with dill weed, garlic powder, and Mrs. Dash lemon pepper. I think I will try your suggestions for some variety.

I really enjoy eating salmon, it is not only tasty but is packed with nutrients like omega-3's and protein. Lately I have been using the Foreman Grill to prepare it. I season it with a bit of salt, pepper and whatever other seasoning strikes my fancy such as a bit of garlic powder. Last night I also added a bit of Italian seasoning mix. And the great thing it only takes a few minutes to cook through (the time varies depending on the thickness)since the Foreman Grill cooks from both sides at once. The salmon comes out beautifully flaky, juicy and flavorful!

Believe in yourself!
