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.
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!

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 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!
