Grilled Salmon Steaks Recipe

Grilled Salmon Steaks Recipe

This is a terrific way to fix salmon...and it's so easy to do. The marinade mellows the fish flavor, and the dill sauce is a wonderful complement. I once served this recipe to 12 people from the Pacific Northwest who declared it was the best salmon they'd ever eaten! -Deb Essen, Victor, Montana
