Combine lemon juice, salt, paprika, and fennel; pour over salmon and marinate for 10 minutes.

Grill salmon, skin side down, until skin sizzles, 34 minutes, flip and grill until salmon is firm and grill marks appear, 3 minutes more. Transfer salmon to a plate, chill; 58 minutes. Gently flake salmon with a fork.
