Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Sprinkle the sockeye salmon with salt and pepper. Pour the oil in a flat dish and add the garlic, lemon juice, lemon rind, pepper flakes, and about 3/4 of the chopped thyme. Place the fillets in the marinade and coat well. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand in a cool place for 15 minutes. Remove salmon from the marinade and place directly on the grill and cook, approximately 5 minutes per side. Remove the salmon from the grill. Combine the melted butter with the remaining thyme and drizzle over fillets.
Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Chill for at least a half hour to allow ingredients and flavors to settle. Enjoy with your choice of bread, pita, or greens either on top of a salad or wrap.
