A local restaurant used fresh peaches to garnish a salmon dish, which gave me this idea for grilling the fish we catch. It’s a beautiful presentation and quick to prepare. —Valerie Homer, Juneau, Alaska
A flavorful pesto helps keep the fish moist, and toasted bread crumbs give the entree a nice finishing touch. “I like to use fresh basil from the garden for this easy dish,” notes Lee Bremson of Kansas City, Missouri.
"This salmon recipe is so easy, and people often tell me it's the best-tasting salmon they've ever had," says field editor Kathleen Jones of Newberg, Oregon. "The fish is moist and tender, and the dill sauce is a delightful complement."
The fish dishes Melissa Merrill relies on are all family-approved. "They love this salmon...and I like that it's so good for us!" she notes from Hatteras, North Carolina. "I grow my own herbs and love using them in recipes like this one."
I served this at a small dinner party once, and it was so well received I've served it many times since. It has a zippy combination of flavors. The salmon veggies all complement each other. —Coleen Martin
