    Insert the probe horizontally into the center of the salmon filet. Place the salmon fillets directly on the grill grates, skin-side up, and close the lid. Cook the salmon, occasionally brushing the salmon with the teriyaki sauce, for 3-5 minutes per side, until the internal temperature reaches 125°F, or until done to your personal preference.
