Grilling the Perfect Coffee Rub Salmon on the Arteflame Grill


Grilling salmon on the Arteflame Grill is a delightful culinary experience that enhances the natural flavors of this delicious fish. Adding a coffee rub creates a unique and flavorful twist that complements the rich taste of salmon. Using the reverse searing method, you’ll lock in the juices with a perfect sear on the center grill grate and finish cooking on the flat cooktop to achieve your desired doneness. This guide will help you create a flavorful and visually stunning coffee rub salmon dish that will impress your guests.


  • 4 Salmon Fillets (skin-on, about 6 oz each)
  • Coarse Sea Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Coffee Grounds
  • 1 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper (optional)
  • Butter (optional, for coating)
  • Fresh Dill and Lemon Slices (for garnish)


  1. Prepare the Coffee Rub and Salmon:

    • Mix the coffee grounds, brown sugar, paprika, and cayenne pepper (if using) in a small bowl.
    • Remove the salmon fillets from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before grilling to reach room temperature for even cooking.
    • Pat the fillets dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture.
    • Season the tops generously with coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, then coat with the coffee rub mixture. Optionally, lightly coat with butter to enhance the flavor.
  2. Fire Up the Arteflame Grill:

    • Clean your Arteflame Grill to ensure a pure grilling flavor.
    • Start the fire early to get it ready for grilling, allowing it to burn down to a bed of hot coals suitable for both searing and indirect cooking.
  3. Grill the Salmon:

    • Sear the salmon fillets over the center grill grate at over 1,000F for about 2-3 minutes on the skin side to create a rich, caramelized crust.  You can also quickly sear the tops of the salmon by flipping them over but don't over cook them!!!
    • Move the salmon fillets to a cooler zone of the flat cooktop and continue cooking using indirect heat to your desired level of doneness. For medium, aim for an internal temperature of 135°F.  Cut one open just enough to make sure the salmon is still pink inside as it will continue cooking after you remove it.
  4. Rest the Salmon:

    • Transfer the grilled salmon fillets to a plate and let them rest for about 5 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute throughout the fish.
  5. Serve:

    • Serve the salmon fillets with your favorite sides. Garnish with fresh dill and lemon slices for an added aromatic touch.

Tips for Grilling Salmon:

  • Season Generously: The rich flavor of salmon benefits from ample seasoning to ensure flavor in every bite.
  • Monitor the Temperature: Using a meat thermometer is crucial for achieving the perfect doneness without overcooking.
  • Let it Rest: Giving your salmon fillets time to rest is essential for a juicy outcome.
  • High Heat for Searing: Achieve a perfect sear by utilizing the high heat of the Arteflame Grill.
  • Butter vs. Olive Oil: Butter adds a rich flavor that complements the salmon beautifully.
