  • salmon 2 whole fillets, skin on
  • dill a large handful, roughly chopped
  • chives roughly chopped to make 2 tbsp
  • lemons 2, thinly sliced
  • olive oil


  • Step 1

    Lay one side of salmon skin side down and cover with the roughly chopped herbs. Top with a layer of lemon slices and season well.

  • Step 2

    Put the other piece of salmon on top, skin side up. Tie the salmon pieces together securely – you can use raffia or string for this, just make sure it’s wet to stop it burning. Brush the salmon all over with olive oil and wrap in a double layer of tin foil.

  • Step 3

    Cook the salmon on a wire rack on the cooler part of the bbq for about 7 minutes on each side then remove the salmon from the foil and put back on the rack. Cook for a further 3-5 minutes on each side until the skin is charred and the fish cooked all the way through. Lift off carefully.
