Reviews for Grilled Citrus Salmon
"I used only the lemon, I thought the orange would make it too sweet, as I do not like sweet meat or seafood. It was fantastic!! I didn't cook it as long, only 12 min. did it perfect."
"Love the citrus but be careful not to overcook the salmon!"
"So easy and absolutely delicious! Our dinner guests were so impressed! A real keeper!"
