Trim the salmon portions and remove the scales from the skin if required by scraping the skin both ways to remove the scales, then wash away and dry off before cooking. 

Drizzle the olive oil over the salmon and season with salt and pepper both sides. 

Pre heat a non sick grill pan and place the salmon skin side down onto the grill.
