    5. GRILL:

    7. Turn salmon once, grilling until internal temperature reaches 140 degrees or until salmon flakes easily with a fork.
    8. BROIL:
    9. Preheat broiler. Place rack 3 to 4 inches from the heat source.
    10. Spray broiler pan with vegetable cooking spray.
    11. Place salmon on rack skin-side-up. Cook approximately 4 minutes per side, turning only once, until salmon reaches an internal temperature of 140 degrees or fish flakes easily with a fork.
