Traeger Grilled Salmon with Tingly Salt

We took our new favorite tingly salt and put it on a fresh piece of salmon for this delicious take on our Traeger Grilled Salmon recipe!

This post is NOT sponsored. Momofuku didn’t ask me to write this, doesn’t know that I exist, and I’m not being compensated in any way for posting this. I just really like this product. I’m not even using affiliate links for the Tingly Salt, I just LOVE this stuff and when I love something and use it I like to share that info with all of you so you can love it too. Traeger isn’t paying me for this post either, actually, but they DID send me a grill. #disclosure

Traeger Salmon with Tingly Salt

If you are a fan of food you probably are well aware of Momofuku and David Chang. From nationwide restaurants to Netflix specials and countless awards, accolades, and very cool friends, David Chang is peak levels of foodie. I haven’t had the chance to eat at a Momofuku (yet), but I did happen upon his line of products (thanks Facebook ads), and after I tried the chili crunch, I basically ordered all the things because it was that good.

How to make Traeger Salmon with Tingly Salt

This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.



Fire up the pellet grill and preheat it to 375°.



Place the salmon on some parchment paper, and liberally sprinkle the filet with tingly salt.

If you don’t have any (yet), we really like just salt & pepper, lemon pepper, and Old Bay too.

Put a pat of butter on each filet.



Place the parchment and fish onto the grill and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until your fish hits between 110°-125°F.

If your fish is less-than-fresh or is farmed fish, you might want to be more conservative with your cooking and bring it to the USDA minimum-recommended temp of 145°. Or close to it. I find that to be very WELL done though and it does things to texture that aren’t ideal.



I served this grilled salmon over a bed of steamed rice and stir-fried vegetables in a spicy stir-fry sauce. It would be great on its own next to a bed of creamy noodles, or on top of a fresh green salad.

Traeger Grilled Salmon FAQ

What if you don’t have a pellet grill?

Well, put that on your Christmas or Birthday wish list, for one, and then fire up your oven because this can be made in the oven too.

How do you keep and reheat leftovers?

Try to plan on not having leftovers. This is fish, after all. Fish isn’t one that does super well with reheating. Unless you have a sous vide. Then all bets are off. Long story short, try not to have leftovers, but if you do, just for the love of everything keep them out of the microwave. Leftover grilled salmon is actually really great eaten cold in a salad, crumbled into scrambled eggs, mixed into your favorite pasta salad, or made into salmon cakes.
