  • Ninja Foodi XL Grill or indoor grill


For Salmon

  • 4 salmon fillets about 2 pounds
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • squirt lemon juice

Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped or minced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • pinch sea salt
  • chopped parsley optional


  • Pat salmon fillets dry with paper towel
  • Drizzle avocado oil all over salmon, including skin
  • Season with sea salt, pepper and garlic powder, and squirt lemon juice over salmon. Allow to sit at room temperature while grill preheats
  • Place grill grate in Ninja Foodi Grill. Press Grill button, then High heat, then Fish, then choose temperature. Press Start
  • When grill says Add Food, insert the smart thermometer into the thickest part of 1 fillet. Use kitchen tongs to place fillets on grill. Close lid
  • When salmon is cooked to desired temperature, remove probe, remover fish to platter, and cover with foil for 3 to 5 minutes
  • Spoon sauce over salmon before serving

Lemon Garlic Butter Sauce

  • Melt butter over low heat on stove
  • Add minced garlic and lemon juice, stir, and cook until garlic is light brown and soft. Season with salt, to taste, and fresh parsley, if desired. Turn heat off to prevent garlic browning too much, if necessary, and cover to keep warm.


Cooking times may vary depending upon thickness of salmon and desired temperature. The USDA recommends cooking to an internal temperature of 145 degrees f
Keep in mind, temperature will rise as salmon rests, so you may want to cook until 5 degrees under desired temperature.
