  • 1 whole salmon (4 lbs.), cleaned and rinsed
  • 1 bunch fresh tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons  olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon  salt

1. Oil and heat grill. Pat dry the cavity of salmon with paper towels. Sprinkle cavity with tarragon, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper; close cavity with toothpicks or small metal skewers. Brush both sides of salmon with 2 tablespoons olive oil, then sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Grill salmon over medium-hot coals 3 inches from heat for 10 to 12 minutes per side, or until salmon flakes at thickest part when pierced with a small knife. When salmon is almost cooked through, brush sliced lemons with 1 teaspoon olive oil; grill 1 to 2 minutes per side, until lightly charred.
