George Foreman grills are known to cook flavorful, healthy meals in a short amount of time. The exclusive design of a George Foreman grill helps reduce fat content, and the nonstick grilling plates prevent the need for butter or cooking spray, which may add calories, sodium and fat per meal. George Foreman grills come in a variety of sizes for both indoor and outdoor use and are capable of cooking beef, poultry, vegetables, seafood and much more.

Step 1

Choose a salmon fillet or steak that is between 1/2 inch and 1 inch thick. Season and/or marinate the salmon filet or steak as desired. Preheat the grill to medium and place the salmon on the grill. Allow it to cook for two to three minutes per 1/2 inch thickness.


Step 2

Test for doneness by poking a fork into the edge of the filet. If the edge of the salmon flakes off easily, then the salmon is done. If the edge does not flake easily, cook for one or two more minutes.

Step 3

Make salmon patties for a different meal. In a large bowl, whip one can of pink salmon with two eggs. Mix well with 1/4 cup of flour, one medium-sized chopped onion and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mold about 2 tbsp. of the mixture into a pattie, and repeat to make three more. Preheat the grill to medium and place the salmon patties on the grill. Cook until each side is browned, about three to four minutes.
