Grilled Pastrami-Style Salmon

The classic seasonings associated with beef pastrami taste fantastic on this grill salmon.

The classic seasonings associated with beef pastrami taste fantastic on this grilled salmon. Allspice is a fairly strong spice, so if you're sensitive to its "burn," use the lesser amount. Purchase a whole center-cut salmon fillet so that it will cook more evenly than a cut that contains the thinner tail end.
