AFTER our children were married and gone, I prepared this entree often for my husband and me, especially on our anniversary. It was one of our favorites.
We found that one of the nicest ways to enjoy each other's company was to have a great meal together.

There’s no reason to shy away from cooking fish at home with a recipe as effortless as this one. Besides basil, try using dill, fennel or coriander in the herby sauce.Crystal Jo Bruns, Iliff, Colorado
Red pepper flakes and cayenne provide the fiery flavor that gives these salmon steaks their name. Basting the fish with the zippy sauce while grilling creates a glossy glaze. Phyllis Schmalz of Kansas City, Kansas
This lip-smacking Lemon Butter Salmon from Karla Seville of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania makes for an easy, breezy supper to serve family or friends out on the patio some warm night. As an extra-special touch, you might add a 4-ounce package of salad shrimp to the remaining lemon butter, then spoon over the salmon before serving.
“I love salmon, but my husband doesn't. So I combined flavors I knew he liked to create this recipe, and now it's the only salmon recipe he will eat. It’s so easy and only requires a handful of ingredients." —Nicole Clayton, Prescott, Arizona
Salmon is special here in the Northwest, and we've often had the privilege of catching some in the Columbia River. This recipe never fails to be a hit, whether we broil the salmon in the oven or grill it outdoors.
My husband and I got this recipe from a chef in 1982...and we've never served salmon any other way since then! Everyone loves the mild-tasting marinade, and out here in Washington friends are always asking me for the recipe.
