  • Heat the grill to medium-high heat (about 450 to 500 degrees F on a gas grill).
  • Place the salmon fillets on a plate or baking sheet (to transport to grill).
  • In a small bowl, stir together the olive oil, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper to form a paste. Rub the paste over the top side of each salmon fillet.
  • Brush the grill grates with oil. Place the salmon skin side up on the grates and close the grill cover. Cook until the salmon easily releases from the grill, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Using tongs, carefully turn the salmon and close the grill cover again. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F, about 2 to 4 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets.
  • Squeeze the lime juice over the salmon. Serve immediately.
