Step 1 – Combine all ingredients together in a small bowl and brush heavily on your fillets.

Step 2 – While the zesty ranch sauce is marinating into your fish fillets, get your grill fired up. I personally prefer and highly recommend grilling over charcoal for added flavor, but a gas grill will work as well. Grill your fillets to medium or your preferred level of doneness over low to medium heat. You want your fish to be flakey on the outside and moist in the middle, so be careful not to overcook it and dry it out. Brush the salmon a few more times with the ranch sauce while its cooking, and then serve it up with wides of your choice.
