This salad’s a little sweet, a little savory and very refreshing. Healthy asparagus boasts anti-inflammatory nutrients and vitamins A, B and C. It’s fabulous grilled; you’ll want to fix this again! —Jenne Delkus, Des Peres, Missouri
I first prepared these kabobs for a team of archaeologists excavating a site in the Aleutian Islands. We used fresh sockeye salmon, but other varieties of salmon work well, too. —Terri Mach, Homer, Alaska
"This is the perfect thing to make for a speedy, healthy meal. I sometimes prepare the marinade in the morning and put the salmon in when I get home from work, and within 30 minutes, they're sizzling on the grill. Add a salad and dinner's ready!"

Kerin Benjamin, Citrus Heights, California relates that her family (including two small children), liked this recipe so well, she made it for a potluck the very next day. "Everyone raved about it there, too, even people who aren't particularly fond of fish," she says.
The super-fast marinade for this salmon recipe from Lenita Schafer of Princeton, Massachusetts combines maple syrup and teriyaki sauce which also creates a delicious sweet-and-sour glaze. She relates, “The salmon stays extremely moist and is really yummy.”
This lovely moist salmon topped with a mild and creamy dill sauce can be ready in minutes. And because it’s cooked in packets on the grill, cleanup is fast too, says Mary Relyea of Canastota, New York.
Alice McGeoghegan from Devevan, California writes, “The original recipe for this dish is used every year at a Fourth of July barbecue in Fort Bragg, California. My husband, Bob, added some extra ingredients to come up with the best grilled salmon we've ever tasted.”
There’s a little story behind the name of my favorite salmon recipe: When my husband, Kevin, and I couldn’t find a spicy teriyaki-style marinade to our liking, we created one in and named it Double K—for Krista and Kevin. Every time we make this flavorful fish, we get asked how we do it.
“With its rich, fresh flavors, this fabulous recipe is perfect for an elegant meal or a family dinner,” says Chris Otis. “I’ll even use my grill in the middle of a cold New Canaan, Connecticut winter just to prepare it!”
It was her husband, Steve, who came up with this easy, foil-packet recipe for flaky, fork-tender Lemon Basil Salmon, says Marianne Bauman in Modesto, California. “We eat a lot of salmon and Steve likes trying out different herbs and spices on our food. This recipe's a winner!”
